I used a lot of 300grs aquarel paper (Saunders Waterford,
Bockingford, Stonehenge, Rives, Magnani, you name it.... looking for
paper made a paper-junkie out of me.....), and the only problem I
had once was a 200 grs Zerkall (maybe due to the fact it was not
'heavy' enough), and the problem was related to bromoil, not to
print-making. All the rest worked perfect. (the last time I bought
some paper they showed me a very 'warm' Fabriano 300 grs, maybe you
could ask for it)
