Anyone else here using Hahnemuehle Bamboo 290?
I experienced my first day of printing on that media and I am delighted!
What I am still pondering about is the best practise/solution for "mercerizing", in lack of a better word, the prints before matting.
There are plenty of liquids available, but you could easily spend a month testing them all.
Currently I use the original hahnemuehle coating, which is only available in spray cans, something I am talking to HM about at the moment. A bucket at lower costs, to be rolled on would be a better solution in my view.
So, what do you use? How many coats do you apply?
I found up to three coats are beneficial, more than three are probably not needed, five would be a maximum I can see as reasonable depending on the size.
