I don't know much about albumen and/or salted paper, but aren't these
processes similar in the aspect of silver nitrate to salt proportion?
AFAIK the "right" proportion is 6 parts of silver nitrate for 1 parts of
salt... So, if you want to sensitize using 12% silver nitrate -> your
albumin solution should contain 2% salt, to use 15% silver nitrate ->
2,5% salt and so on...
