RE: Masking contact prints


I've found this to be true with a number of papers, especially Japanese vellums.  One substitute I use along with four 3" x 16" strips of rubylith it sections of Postits葉hey are VERY low tack, but enough to hold it all together.

That's because you're using robust paper I presume. Thin vellum or
vellum-like papers and/or papers with little or no surface size will be
definitely abraded with the tape I use (especially on the teared edges /
corners where the paper was already abraded), even if I lower the tackiness
as you describe. (If I overdo it it will cause emulsion to seep under.)
