I'm doing my annual pinhole camera, alternative process workshop this weekend. ( http://ccde.usask.ca/uscad/photography ) I'm going to have my students print on the Canson Universal Sketch paper that Christina suggested.  Although its a light weight paper, it works well for both Van Dyke and cyanotype.

I want to get a few sheets of heavier paper to show students the differences in papers, especially the differences in the color tone of Van Dykes from paper to paper. I haven't had time to check a lot of other papers.  What are people favorite papers for Van Dyke?
