Jeff-- is this all in reference to Platine? Or another paper? The back of
the Platine sheet is rough, but the 'front' side normally used is very
smooth. I don't find it needs *any* preparation before coating or printing
other than to work in a fairly humid environment (65% Rh seems ideal for
this paper). Only thing I don't like about Platine is that the finished
print is more fragile--easier to abrade with a light touch or by brushing
against another print--than other papers.
Wendy--leaving coated paper more than a couple hours before exposure isn't a
good idea. Chemical reactions are apt to be underway and at the very least
the consistency of your results may be reduced compared to prompt printing.
Crane 90# cover Natural White (available directly from the Crane paper
company website) as well as their AS8111 stationery paper are both very
nice. I've just recently begun trying Lenox 100 and it seems promising and
something of a 'best buy' for an all-cotton sheet.
