My PT/PD prints are about 95% palladium and 5% platinum.  A number of times, I have coated paper and suddenly had an attack of vertigo so I have had to stop work.  I have exposed coated paper from between 24 to 48 hours later, but no longer than that.  I haven't noticed a change in speed, contrast or fog but I have noticed that the finished prints looked warmer in color.

I made some decent prints with the pre-coated paper but not as nice as what I make now.  So there must be a way to pre-coat and use later.

From what I understand it will fog if not exposed the same day, but perhaps am I wrong in thinking so? So i’ve never tried it… I’d love to be able to prepare 10 sheets at a time and not worry about having to expose them the same day.
