When I did albumen
printing long ago I found the thinner papers work better in the floating steps:
I used Simili Japon NL 130gr/m2 .
Simili Japon NL 225gr/m2 I use as my standard paper for Pt printing,
Cyanotype, Kallitype etc. Nice papers at a decent price, hard to get in the USA it seems, don’t know about the UK though,

Subject: Albumen paper
I want to make some albumen paper for printing wetplate negs. What
papers are recommended and what weight? The range of paper here in the UK seems to be quite limited in comparison to
for example I’ve never seen Cranes here. What qualities does the paper
need, buffered, unbuffered etc.
Any info much appreciated.
Regards and happy New Year to all,
