Re: Paper Negative Details

And I would want to do this... why?

Sorry, that sounded flip, but I can't think of any reason why I'd want to add yet another step to making paper negatives, especially when I have a paper that works perfectly well, and a transparency that works perfectly well, without rabbit glue. But thanks for the suggestion,

Just coat the paper with 'rabbit' glue and you will have all the details you need; btw you can also coat ordinary clear transparency material with this glue, easy, cheap and astonishing results.

John, re using cheap uncoated paper for paper negatives:

Doesn't work well, to my taste. You need a light coating on the paper to hold sharp edges; uncoated paper (a) tends to make a softer print and (b) tends to have more internal texture that can print. But thanks for the suggestion.
