Does anyone know how long a book of blotter paper lasts? Does anyone know how to remove Blotter paper lint off a print? :mad: (Ilford MGF.5k matt paper)

I used blotters for a while with good results. A few layers between the prints allow for even drying and flat prints _BUT_ I found that I had to move the damp prints to fresh, dry blotters at least once during the drying process. The one time I didn't it was a lint nightmare. I just re-soaked the prints in water with a bit of Photo-Flo and saved the prints but never used blotters again. Too much hassle. Now I just hang them until dry and give them several seconds in the dry mounting press. Fast, Easy and the results are always perfect.

The waxy sheet in between the blotter books make good dry-mount "release" paper. 'bout all blotter books are good for, IMHO.

I guess that's what I get for not asking sooner :rolleyes: . Looks like motivation for making those drying screen...
Thanks Flotsam for the tip on the bit of photo-flo in the re-soak.
