Re: palladium grain
Yep, Eric...the more I think about it, the more I believe I humidified the paper for too long, with the consequences you describe...live and learn.

You may have gotten the solution to soak in too much as well showing paper fiber. If it happens again , then inspect the process. If it is a one off, perhaps just that. You may also have a problem piece of paper.

I usually hold the paper over a pot of simmering water and it works fine, but yesterday I got a weird graininess...has that ever happened to anyone?Bear with me. Yes in the shadow/dark regions when I "overexposed" the paper. I need to circle back on this, but I think I overexposed because the speed of the paper/emulsion changed due to humidity of paper. As Palladium exposes is masks - more if humid (prints out).
