Tried the pack of Bergger VCCB semi-gloss last night. Gorgeous! Thick and lovely. Isn't even curling up very much. :goodvibe: :love:

Bergger only makes FB, is that right?

Thanks for the update on that. As a handcolorist I've tried lots of artists papers and inkjet papers for the oils, so I know how meticulous and painstaking the process can be. Bergger is one of THE most expensive in inkjet papers, btw, but it's beautifully made stuff. :D

Paper curling also depends of how you dry it. I've noticed that my 12x16" FB prints don't curl that much if I let them dry on a screen and remove the excess of water after the washing. Then a couple of days under a few heavy books and they're just fine.

How are you drying your prints?

I know your question is directed at Orie, but since I don't have a regular screen, after I squeegee my prints I use cheesecloth. My FB papers always curl, so I have to use the heavy book treatment, too! :)
