Tom and Joe: does it mean that if you coat cold press paper with
gesso, you'll get a surface as smooth as baby's ass to print on?

Maybe a baby porcupine. In my experience the surface became much
rougher. (I gessoed using a foam brush.) I suppose you could sand the
gesso smooth as one would do with a canvas and I recall that I did that
for a couple tests, but I abondoned the gesso idea because I just didn't
like the effect of the gesso overall.
