I’ve been starting a lot of threads lately… I fear I may become the cat in “The Cat Came Back”!
I’ve probably settled on Selenium K7 because there are many supported papers. One paper I was considering was the Epson Fine Art Velvet which is supported, seems bright like the EEM according to http://www.cjcom.net/articles/digiprn5b.htm . So, I decided to search around for anyone who’s actually used it in piezography and came across Jeff’s saga with EEF, and IJM’s conclusions about the paper from last year. After reading that thread I’m not sure I want to venture into Epson paper for the expensive stuff. I’ve already remortgaged my home for my R2000 and piezo ink, I can’t afford to make a drastic mistake on expensive paper.
When I went to the IJM Selenium K7 page, I found that the EEF was highly recommended for this ink. I expect this recommendation will change in the coming months as the site is updated. Can you tell me what paper you might recommend as a good replacement for the EEF?
I printed a QTR-K3 print on some Epson EEM and while it’s not quite as contrasty as glossy papers, the absence of distracting reflections was really nice. I was really impressed, even for my amateur processing and it only being a QTR-K3 print. In fact, the print has convinced me that I could be happy with primarily matte prints, if I can find a good reliable paper.
