I've not noticed this but I've been making Kalitypes on the Clearprint vellum so maybe that doesn't compare to your process as  regarding the spots.

How are you controlling the dot gain with Clearprint? Creating a digital negative (or positive) on this paper creates soft (blured) output. This may be okay for a creative effect but is not always what I desired. As I remember you maybe using an Epson 7600. Are you using a 3rd party RIP to print with? Are you getting sharp negatives with the Clearprint?

I'm in the process of setting up a Linux workstation to use Roy Harrington's QuadTone Rip. BTW, this RIP, if anyone is interested can be used on a MAC or a Linux OS but not on a PC. It is very inexpensive and apparently works quite well with quad/hextone inkjet inks for regular printing so I'm hopping it will control the quadtone inks precisely on my 1160 for making negatives. Now if I could just get my darkroom operational again .....
