Re: Strathmore paper source wanted

I was planning to give a try to albumen, and I would like that my pictures have the look of the old ones. For what I have read till now, Strathmore 500 1-ply seems to be the only one having the right qualities, in particular about the thickness. So, I am very interested to know the results of this comparison.
Or someone has a different suggestion for an alternative to this paper?

I'm using it for pt/pd/cyanotype. New ones are just entirely different, and inferior to the old. Have no idea whether the difference would affect albumen. Want me to send you a small sheet to try?

What are you using the paper for? I'm wondering because if it's no
longer suitable for albumen then I'll need to look elsewhere.
