Looks like you found Coprinellus disseminatus or something similar.

That one is a Psathyrella species, I think.

Perhaps they are white spored.  You can see white spores on white paper if you hold it at an angle and look at it in direct sunlight.

I think he just didn't leave it for long enough. If I read it right he used both black and white paper.

I wait at least 4-6 hours, if not longer for a solid print.
