RE: fabriano artistico EW

Hi Loris

I use FAEW for cyanotype. I don't acidify and rarely get any purple alkali
problems when coating. I do like to size it sometimes too, it sort of gives
a more crisp image like I get with Arches Aquarelle.

Paul, what method do you use for acidification? Oxalic, hydrochloric,
acetic, ...? If Oxalic, have you noticed a grittiness after acidification?

I like that paper too -> for gums and since I can buy it locally (have to
import other fine papers), I'm very interested in using it for other
processes, mostly Cyanotype...
