RE: Arches Platine

Hi Manual,

I do not know about Portugal (you are in Portugal, right ? ), but Simili Japon can be bought in AFAIK in all art shops here in Holland. It is made in Holland by Van Gelder ( see http://www.petervanginkel.nl/index.php?id=925, dutch only I am afraid)

Where do you get Simili  Japon here in Europe?

Actually I use COT-320(after the  no availability of Arches Platine) and :

Weston Papers for Platinum/Palladium  Photographic Printing
Weston's Diploma Parchment
100% Cotton
Substance #47/177gsm
 Weston Diploma Parchment is a rosin & alum sized sheet with a PH 5.5-7.5.
The sheet is not  buffered with calcium carbonate.

Hi Steven,

I would not know how to get Arches Platine, I myself use Simili Japon
for Pt printing, and I quite like it, although it has a creamy base,
perhaps you won't like that.

You could check out our friend Roger at http://www.permadocument.be/,
Brussels , Belgium.

On this list used to be (still are?) 2 other Pt printers in The
Netherlands I know of: Witho Worms at http://www.witho.nl/ and Erich
Camerling at f2hcamerling43@hetnet.nl

Perhaps you can contact them, maybe they know more..

Does anyone know if Arches Platine is available in the Netherlands?
not, is there a good place in Europe to order it from?
