Hello all!

Ive been getting into salt printing lately and have just two questions I cant seem to get answered. First, anything Ive read about using ocean water says to dilute it at least 1:1 with distilled water. Is this really necessary? What would happen if the salt solution was as high as %30 ? Also Ive been using gelatin with my salt solution but have seen recipes that are purely salt. Which papers are best for such solutions where no gelatin is used?
