Subject: [alt-photo] best paper for Van Dyke
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?
