- Hi Jake....I tried literally EVERYTHING they carried and liked the
NaturText, which I get cut long grain 19 X 25. As for drying too long after
aluming, I dry them on the line totally in 55% humidity or under and they
keep thus far for months and months....haven't had them for years yet. The
key is either all damp under boards and use fast, or totally bone dry, then
under boards in a room never above 55%. This has worked 26 years with any
paper that marbles.
I am not sure what the min. order for any of their papers are if you wish a
custom order....perhaps many thousands, like 10 or 20? Hey, if it's the
only way to do it, I will do it, period. I find the NT takes the colors
beautifully and the paper is luxurious, you could sleep on it!

>Susanne- is what you are using Hahnemuhle Kongress paper? That is a
less expensive laid paper that they make. the grain is short, like
I have a fair bit of this before Atlantic quit distributing it. They
said they could get more if there was enough demand for a bulk order.
Iris- have you tried Kongress as well? Some of it worked well, and
other times iI had trouble as well, probably letting the sheets dry too
long after aluming? I have yet to try the natur-tex, but will do so.
- Iris, I love learning of these intricacies! Fascinating. I don't think we have opened ream 2 of that purchase, so I will definitely check it before distributing it. The balancing act of dilution/concentration of mordant, size and pigment can be challenging enough! Now buffering of paper adds to the mix. Thanks! Tara
