      John...when I teach everyone takes home wet and mainly non-rinsed papers.... my paints if you work right need no rinsing.... so many are still wet at the end. They layer in newspaper to go home, and there were never any complaints about sticking, however they are still a little damp when they peel the paper off I think. Then they lay them around a room to totally dry.

      I have seen Don Guyot at a class do this, and though rinsed, I was amazed they don't seem to stick either. I find it easier and quicker to hang and drip over buckets.

      By sandwiching the freshly marbled paper between
      newspaper, wouldn't the marbled paper stick to the
      newspaper after it is dry since there would be some
      size remaining on the marbled paper,unless one rinses
      the marbled paper throughly with water which I do not
      normally do)
