Well, Mr. Tobie would probably tell you that
you need to profile the stuff.

I'll simply tell you that some papers don't
work well with Epson OEM inks.  In particular,
resin-coated papers don't work -- and I'm
guessing that's what the "RC" stands for on
the Lumijet paper you mention.

You might try some of the other paper-type
settings in the printer driver -- in particular,
use "back-lit film" to minimize the ink output.

The 1200 is notorious for delivering massive
doses of ink...

The papers that do work well with Epson inks
are those with clay/ceramic/kaolin coatings.
Watercolor papers "work" but are problematic
in other ways (lots of dot gain, poor 
contrast, etc.)
