I too have been looking at this section of the book and haven’t yet worked with this method.

One of the questions I have is whether the potassium compounds play a significant role or whether the sodium versions will give similar results?

However, it is important that the sheet dries completely before exposure. I tried to cheat with a hair dryer, and my results were not as good as when I waited overnight before I exposed. The image is not as strong when the sheet is not completely dry. I am sure that the humidity in your drying area makes a difference. I suspect that the formation of silver chloride in the the paper fibers is dependent on the dryness of the sheet.
