Hi Cor !

1- First , a minor correction about the Canson paper : it's called Fontenay
and not Fonteney.
2- As you noticed, there was no picture for the Canson Fontenay "Fine grain"
in the "vivid colours" link you gave us in your last message; this is normal
because the 2 versions (fine and rough) are not distinct :
Canson Fontenay is a "dual -texture" paper, one rough "cloth" [grain
torchon] side, one fine grain [grain fin] side !

You may find all details on the Canson web-site, both in French and English,
at :
or, in French at

I had used Fontenay papers with success for cyanotypes as well as
argyrotypes, mostly using the smoother "fine grain" side and never
encountered any problem with them.

Photographic cheers from France,
