I'm starting to experiment with albumen printing. I'd like to coat a bunch of paper just with salted albumen. I'll coat the paper with the silver nitrate solution just before printing. How long can I store paper with salted albumin? Thanks in advance!

I’ve used some that was several years old. It used to be that the coated paper was put in a hot attic for a year or so to age. I don’t think reasonable age is a problem.

That’s great to hear! Does aging the albumin improve the paper?

Thanks for your response.
