Send Message: To this poster

Hey All,

A question - I was sizing my papers (thanks for the advice on that
earlier, especially Dave) and it went pretty well, my first printing
layer took well without any blurring or funky stuff happening EXCEPT my
proofing sheets (cut from Shoji-gami rolls from Lee Valley) ended up
with a mottled pattern where it looked like the paper didn't absorb the
water (though they printed fine...) Any thoughts on why that happened?
I'm assuming it must already have had some sizing on it from the
manufacturer but was wondering if anyone knew another explanation or was
sure that this was what happened....

I have had this happen with western paper quite a bit, it has discolorations in it when wet, but it prints fine and when it dries it looks fine....I too would like to know what causes this and think it might be extra sizing in some spots. Or??? any ideas?
Best to all,
