      I have heard some newer Canson doesn't work either... but try.

      Thanks for the info about the paper, Iris. I'm not going to order any at this stage, because I think the postage add too much to the price of the paper. I think Canson is available here, and I may already have some in my growing paper collection.

      These papers are generally not available in stores, you need to send for them via mail order. TALAS will sell small amounts. Some suppliers sell small amounts (as in under 100-500) of the Hahnemuele papers. Canson used to work, so I hear it is iffy now.

      Interested with the paper treatments. It would drive me mad. When I marble too, I tend to do a huge amount over a long day. To fit all that in would take too much time, but interesting to read!

      Thanks, Iris. I don't think the papers you mentioned are available from here, but I'll ask at a local supplier. I have used Neenah columns successfully (without soda water), which is made by the company that I think make your Classic Linen.

      The first time I tried the soda water treatment, I had already tried marbling the same paper on the same day, but without the soda water treatment. That was how I chose the paper that didn't work. The same type of paper then did work, an hour or so later (it was a hot day), after I had treated it with soda water, dried it, alumed it, and dried it again (yes, it was annoying doing another step or two, and would have been even more annoying if it had been Winter!). The only difference between that day, and one more recently (apart from the time of year, weather, ...) was that I used isocol (isopropyl alcohol) in the paints the first time, but 95% alcohol more recently. During the second session, I did all the soda water treatment, etc on the papers first (because I thought the papers wouldn't work otherwise...), and all worked. At the last minute, I thought I should just check a paper that had only alum on it, but on that day, it worked too! I will try
      things again soon. Perhaps I should try paints with isocol and paints with 95% alcohol on the same day, with paper that has been alumed and with paper that has the soda water, etc treatment!

      Regards
      Robyn
