I don't have any problems with grain with Platine. Except in the past I
had mottling and what looked like grain or the suface breaking up but this
was chemical. Either chemicals too cold or uneven coating, etc. Like Carl
do not use any chlorate or dichromate and get the negatives to have the
contrast I need.
I like platine very much. I used to make very small prints and press the
finished print between two pieces of archival mount board (with heat) in a
dry mounting press and that seemed to make the surface smoother. Out of all
the papers I have tried (Fabriano, BFK, Stonehenge, Arches Satine and some
others I have forgotten about) Platine provides the best results for me (and
Bienfang), however, I have not tried the Cranes yet.
