Yup I did; if you remember the convo about this from a couple years back, not only did I soak it, I soaked it ALL DAY. No budge.Hmmmm... but you didn't soak it in NYC water! Maybe I should send you some?
I also had a funny--a former student donated her alt supplies to the department and in there was a stack of sized paper hardened with glyoxal (former professor's method) and it was butterscotch yellow, I kid you not, so if you use glyoxal as a size hardener, be sure to use the paper right away to prevent this. Or do Judy's method of sizing and hardening and then rinsing it. The former professor did teach a separate hardener bath, even, but this still produced crummy paper. Go to this URL and scroll down and see what yellowing looks like.
