I think you as well as Henk may have missed my point, and no doubt
that's my fault for not saying it enough times. But I'll say it
again: I don't need to experiment with paper for paper negatives
because I found a paper years ago that works beautifully, and still
does, as far as I know (Andrea's recommendation suggests that it
indeed still does). It's Epson PhotoQuality Inkjet Paper; it's
quite cheap, currently about $13.99 for 100 sheets, and it works
very nicely. It has a light coating on it that takes the ink
nicely for a sharp crisp print, but doesn't interfere with oil.
It's the papers with a heavier coating, the glossy photo papers
(more expensive) that I was not recommending because they tend to
mottle and crack when treated with either oil or wax, in my
experience; the PhotoQuality Inkjet paper isn't subject to that
problem. Hope that's all clearer,

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.
