Re: [BKARTS] Epson printing on watercolor paper question



Hi,
I have printed on that paper with the Epson R2400 with satisfactory results and no fiddling with profiles. The paper, being uncoated, is absorbent -- use the watercolor paper setting and front-load, otherwise you will get bleeding. As for color accuracy, during a recent studio tour I ran across a photographer who had made a comparison test of a whole range of coated and uncoated papers and actually preferred the UNcoated results, and so did I. Besides the Arches I've printed on a number of other watercolor papers (Strathmore, Lanaquerelle, etc) and uncoated printmakers papers, as well as papers I sized myself, and Japanese papers. I have preferred to fiddle the image and the Epson paper type until it looks the way I want it, rather than messing with profiles. I suppose an artist's lithographer would not be pleased, but it does for me.

Subject: [BKARTS] Epson printing on watercolor paper question

Has anyone on this list ever printed color images on watercolor paper? I was looking at some Arches hot pressed 140 lb paper and wondering how it would work in my 2400 Epson printer. (that paper comes in rough, cold pressed, and hot pressed.... the hot pressed being the smoothest of the three.)  If you have done work with this kind of paper, I would like to talk with you a bit before I get too deep into it. Maybe you could contact me off list at  jcdeason@machlinkcom  Or you could respond on this list and others could learn from your experiences.  Thanks.
