RE: Artistico Unsized?

FWIW, Masa isn't slower than Artistico. With my lightsource (a bank of
UVBL tubes) the exposure times are exactly the same (with similar
results). Can't speak for Arches since I haven't used it before (maybe I
should five COT320 a try?)...

"...The smooth side coats beautifully and prints quite well, but it's
very slow. Both sides are slow, but I assumed the nappy side was slow
because it soaks up a lot more emulsion so the coating is thicker, but
even the smooth side, which uses much less emulsion, is slow, at least
4x the exposure required for my usual Arches paper..."
