Well, I tried the Ranger Archival and it did not stamp well on my WC paper, which is a cold press 90 lb. and not terribly rough. Tried with two stamps that have fine detail, and the results were not usable in my opinion.

I have the Versafine on order. But I can't imagine it will be so different.

And I can't think it's the paper, I'm just using plain old Canson 90 lb cold press. Are others using hot press?

This is a drag because if I want to paint in these images I need to work on WC paper. I find CS doesn't hold up unless you use very little water and don't go over things.

Is it me? Or is it that I am using cold press? Does anyone else have trouble with fine detail stamps on WC paper? I'm starting to think I live in a parallel universe, where none of the regular rules apply.
I have come to the conclusion that buying craft supplies and actually using them are two separate hobbies.
