I found that white Stonehenge paper not very to my liking for multi layer gum. It lacks the strength that I need as I handle my prints rough with lots of forced development. After soaking the surface gets very absorbent and even after siezing does not produce nice, dark images. Since you are talking about printing on black you might not have a lot of choices of paper. Also as evident by recent discussion people print on most of flimsy papers (Masa) with great success.|
On the other hand you might try siezing white paper with gelatine/carbon mixture to get nice blacks. I have been thinking about printing white on black paper, so let us know about your experiments
Regular Stonegenge is a grat paper for a straight palladium work.

Gord, I'm just checking to see if anyone has tried printing on the black stonehenge before I place an order for 10-15 sheets. I'm thinking I shouldn't have any problems, though, as people have used white/natural stonehenge for printing w/ gum before, but wanted to check.
