Re: mystery paper
You are right, any paper will do fine for gum...in fact, I had a student do tricolor on flimsy vellum because I told him it wasn't good for gum. He proved me wrong :)
Henk told me it wasn't too good for tricolor but good for some layers, but mainly since I do solarplate I thought I would save it for that instead of gum since it seems designed for intaglio. In reading the description of the paper, it seems soft to me.
Also, I used to use Rives BFK for gum which I liked well enough, but still prefer Fabriano AEWHP to that, so if it ain't broke I guess I'm not gonna fix it.

I will not be using it for gum, then :)I'm curious Chris, why you say you won't be using Hahnemuhl for gum... I've tried most of the Hahnemuhl papers and found most (or at least many) of them good for gum (tho I haven't bought any lately because somehow I over-diversified & have many others ready & waiting).
