Re: Platine

Can't really add anything to the comments existing. I was stung with two different batches of crap Platine about five years ago so lesson learned. The Bergger Cot 320 might be more expensive but it's never trashed a day of printing.

Best of success,

I know other people have had this problem with inconsistent paperómostly the sizing not being even and the mottling that Brian is reporting.  I don't use it.

Ah, probably no.

I pounded (and wasted time) with old and new cyanotype and Platine
and was plagued with mottling...

I assumed "Good for Platinum, good for Cyanotype."

I did not try Pt/Pd, but I suspect I was seeing something similar
(similar "siderotype" process).


P.S. Unfortunately I was not undercharged...
