I've been using Fabriano Artistico EW HP for pt/pd with a 1% oxalic acid bath for 5 minutes prior to printing with the paper, and am getting good results. I'm curious if users of COT320, Arches Platine, and Revere paper find it necessary to acidify the paper before use, and if so, what is that process?

Hi Catharine,

I used to use both Arches Platine and COT 320, but I started having a lot of trouble with batches of COT320 in the last year or so-- lots of graininess and problems.  I have no idea what they've done differently with the paper, but I have to believe they made some change with it.  I know a couple of other people who have had the same trouble with batches they purchased.  And while I like Arches Platine, I did start using Revere, probably based on someone's recommendation here-- and it's truly the best paper I've ever used for pt/pd.  Really beautiful results.  Now I don't use anything else.
