BTW, I am finding that with carbon printing I have to use a sheet of
thin Mylar between the negative and the carbon tissue to avoid part
of the negative sticking to the tissue. The tissue will be perfectly
dry to the touch but it still has enough moisture to pull small parts
off the negative, which of course destroys both the image and the

Just wondering if folks are having this problem printing with Pt./Pd.
