Vandyke is certainly very easy and reliable so if you like the colors
great. I would imagine it is also a great process to use to introduce
students to hand-made papers.
Just curious, though, in addition to the gray/black colors you sometimes
have seen are, there other colors that one can get from Vandyke? I am
curious because a while back I used the dry mount press to flatten a
Vandyke print out and it changed the color from a light chocolate black to
a very deep dark/black much more neutral in tone. When I put the print in
the dry mount press it still had some humidity in it, though it was dry.
