Re: Rives BFK for pt/pd and gum question

It's one of my favorite papers for the combination of those two processes! It also responds quite well to Gamblin PVA Size at 1:1 (haven't tried it at 1:2 because I like the extra sheen on the velvety paper from 1:1).

Clay Harmon had a great post on his full plate blog about printing palladium on BFK Rives, but I can't seem to find it at the moment so I need to do some searching for it.

Hi all...
I was given a package of this paper (don't think it's the heavyweight version) and was wondering if anyone prefers the "back" side which is smoother than the watermarked side...?
I thought I might try it in both processes, just for fun...
