Paper Absorbency Questions
These are most likely silly questions, but I haven't been able to find good answers yet. I'm in the middle of printing the same image on several different kinds of paper, all French, but some #65 and some #100.
It seems like the images printed on the #65 paper turned out with a lot less definition than those printed on the #100 paper, and I'm curious as to what the reasons for that might be. Does the weight of the paper have anything to do with that? Or how much ink I pull across the screen? Or how much pressure I am applying? These all seem like they'd be valid factors, but I guess I'm just really curious as to why all the prints done on the #100 paper turned out great, while almost half of the prints on the #65 turned out mediocre.
