Re: fabriano artistico EW
Funny you should mention an aftercoat.
I was reading Stan Klimek's addendum in the Arentz book, and he mentions waxing pt/pd prints to deepen the blacks and put a semi-matt finish on them...
I think I've mentioned that I'm working with argyrotypes as a prep for printing in pt/pd, so besides the Mike Ware argy info I've been using Arentz as a rough guide to the general things I should heed re: iron processes. Whatever I can glean from there is helpful...
I'll try an aftercoat on a test strip soon...thanks!

Thanks, will try to acidify soon, with hydrochloric acid -> I once coated traditional white with oxalic acid rich ferric oxalate (there was 1 part oxalic acid per 2 parts ferric oxalate in the solution) and it got pretty gritty. Maybe EW is different than the traditional white I got? Unfortunately the distributor doesn't stock EW, perhaps painters around here don't like the EW... :) Scattering? Try 1+1 diluted hydrocote polyshield clear gloss wood finish (if you don't mind a little glossy print) and you'll be surprised!
