Yes, that's what I meant, at least, when I said I printed from paper negatives for several years, when my old inkjet printer would no longer make decent negatives on transparencies.On Thu, 12 Oct 2006, Keith Gerling wrote:
I don't know about other people, but I oiled mine with mineral oil. Kees and I both reported using Epson photo quality paper, which took oil very well, but I should mention that this paper has a noticeable (when viewed against light) internal texture. Oiling the paper makes the texture less visible, but in large areas of even tone, it can sometimes be seen in a gum print. However, since it wasn't a regular texture, like a laid pattern for example, I didn't find it objectionable. But some might. I'll see if I can find an example on my website. So there might be a better paper for the purpose. For a while I was using a paper that was designed especially for color photocopiers, that had no grain at all, took oil well, and printed beautifully, but when I went to buy more of it, it had changed or was no longer available or something.
I'll add that IME, glossy coatings on photo papers (at least those available in the late 90s) didn't take either wax or oil well.
