RE: gelatin

Yes, have done so.  I am just printing on roll paper - very cool.

What were the reasons for this suggestion?  I've done a layer of Knox
gelatin underneath VDB coatings, and as far as I could tell it had no
effect whatsoever on the final print.  Side by side, I couldn't see a
difference/advantage to coating with gelatin first.

As far as dos and don'ts go, in my experience it's pretty hard to screw up
VDB with a gelatin undercoat...just make sure the gelatin's completely dry
before coating the VDB solution.
