Re: My first platinum-palladium over gold leaf prints
I've tested a number of different sizes, some intended for the purpose and others not so much. The best thus far is Kolner (picture an umlaut over the "o") Permacoll Size from http://www.gildedplanet.com/. They are very nice people to deal with over the phone. This size goes on easily, is transparent and maintains its stickiness for hours so you're not hustling during a narrow window of time to get the gold onto the back of the vellum.
Hope this helps!
