part of a project requires multiple media painting and I am to produce something on watercolor paper. Specifically, the paper is made by Canson and is labeled cold press, fine grain, 300 g.
It's this stuff:http://www.aswexpress.com/discount-art-supplies/paper-and-sketchbooks/watercolor-sheets-and-blocks/canson/student-series.html
So my question is- which icc profile should i use and what should i tell my printer about the paper i am using. Obviously it's going to be of the 'matte variety' but should i pick
proofing paper semimatte
or from the fine art menu-velvet fine art, ultrasmooth or watercolor
or from the matte menu-enhanced matte, archival matte, photoquality inkjet or singleweight matte
or something else?
I am not asking anyone to do my work for me, just point me in the right direction so i dont waste too much ink and paper.
Also, a minor problem
I tried the watercolor setting with the single weight matte profile. The printer (epson 3800) asks me to use the rear slot. But no matter what I do, it gives me a 'paper skew error'. Since this is an unusual paper, I suspect I am goofing on a setting and the printer cant deal with it. Any suggestions/experience?
