    Salted Paper Prints - Technical Question

    A question for those of you making salted paper prints: In that first step when the salt is applied and dried, is it practical to coat several sheets for a few printing sessions and hold them for future use, ready to accept the silver nitrate layer?

    I plan to try the process soon here, but that's about the only question I can't find an answer to.

    Great. Thanks for the feedback Peter. That seems to make for a pretty nice workflow then.

    I have been using gelatin size w/ Glyoxal hardener for gum prints. It sounds like you recommend I try that before salting the paper. I'll do some experiments and see what gives the nicest print.

    Thank you! -R

    I get the best results if I go inmediately from the salt application to the silver coating, drying the paper in between and afterwards with a hairdryer. I do not size the paper, which could make a difference as it would make the fibers less permeable.

    These prints are something I think worthy of giving a try to see if it works in my life.
