A couple of hints here:
1. warm the emulsion in a water bath to about 110ºF and it will 'flow' around easier. By tilting the plate you should
be able to obtain a smooth and even coverage. With care you might allow some to drip off a corner back into your
2. Add a few drops of heavy whipping cream to your mixture. This makes for a much smoot her coating procedure. If
you think this is weird, it came from the Jobo newsletter a few years back. If you wish, I can go to my archives
and try to resuscitate the directions .. but go for it. I'd say, from memory, to try about 1/4 teaspoon for an 8x10
just to give you an idea.
Nothing as interesting as when is porn porn, the meaning of postmo dernism,weston's peppers and the value of contemplating women's breasts. Just a mundane inquiry: I am trying to coat the metal plates supplied by Rockaloid with Ag Plus emulsion. They recommend pouring a small puddle onto the middle of the 4x5 plate and moaving the plate around so the stuff is distributed, and using a finger to push it toward the corners if necessary. Using a finger doesn't work at all for me-- and I am not getting anything resemble even coating although the emulsion is liquified as per ins tructions.I've tried a foam brush an d hake brush too, with very messy results. I'm new to liquid emulsions -- are some better than AG Plus for working on metal? or paper? All responses much appreciated.
Also -- could someone reind me about how one accesses the list's archives? Thanks.
