Re: Direct Carbon and Echague's Clues

Hi Folks,
Those of you who feel, like myself, that there is interesting work to be done in discovering ways of making D/C prints which are similar in appearance to the Carbondir prints of Jose Ortiz Echague The following sentence, taken from the translation, previously posted, may suggest more than a simple directive as to a suitable base coating:-
*''The paper for direct carbon is made of a thin layer which is GENERALLY gelatine ; ''*
** The meaning of the original Spanish word translated as GENERALLY may not suggest that this layer is specifically gelatine.
Anyone closely acquainted with Spanish might construe something more enlightening and helpful. But then many of Echagues clues are of this nature where a slight change in understanding would produce a surprising change in results.
As ever. Happy hols.

Hello to all:
Please tell me where he/she has found that sentence of Ortiz Echague and that more wants to translate or to interpret. As me I am Spanish, he/she could help in the interpretation. GENERALLY in Spain it could be interpreted as 90% of the cases, leaving alone 10% for other uses. Then if Echague toward their layer GENERALLY with jello, we could say that 90% or more than their mixtures it used jello and not any other element. The use of another product that was jello, could even be worthless for our studies. Thank you and pardon for my English, text translated by computer.
