Re: agar sizing

I already try Agar agar for platinum palladium and cyanotype with good result. I also try with gum but don' t remind the result , will try this week again.

I have given a try to cuprotype on BFK sized with 1.7% agar-agar by brush (2% was setting too fast). There is no need to harden the size, because agar is soluble only in boiling water, and thus I used my paper in a few hours. As the results were satisfatory and agar sizing looks promising, I wonder if you have any experience with this size and different processes.
