Re: Window Screens to Handle Thin Papers During Processing
You are right; the screen would leave a cross-hatch pattern on many papers. After the wash (in the screen sandwich) the wet prints are given a final distilled water rinse in a tray (without the benefit of the screen) and then placed between two sheets of acid-free blotter paper to dry.
Hope this helps,

but if you're working on regular artists' paper that's been very well soaked (that is, softened) don't let it dry on any screening, as that will leave a screen pattern impressed into the paper.
