Sorry, I've just downloaded 39 posts and can't read them all at the
moment, what with doing the hostess-at-the-coast gig for the big
weekend, so I'm sort of picking thing to open at random.

I can't speak to the general question of cold water presoak, as I said
earlier, but in that discussion I did say that I didn't think cold
soaking would improve a paper that prints badly unsized, of which
Aquarelle, if by which you mean Arches Aquarelle, is exhibit A.
