RE: gelatin

Hi Scott, I have always thought this was done because VDB is
sopaper-sensitive, and this makes sense to me. I have had some awful results
with incompatible papers, and I know our lecturer always recommended sizing.
I have tried both, and haven't really noticed much difference - but then I
always use compatible paper now.

Someone mentioned to me that I might coat my paper prior to printing (van
dyke) with gelatin. Does anyone have experience with this? Formulas,
methods, do's and don'ts etc.
