No.  To recap:  I was having problems getting a smooth and even
emulsion coat  without having the dry surface absorb before the
emulsion could be spread.  Humidification addressed this.  With masa
all kinds if problems ensued (all caused by the paper being very
thin), so I started misting the paper and then immediately coating.
Now, I just add the water to the emulsion (I was using 1 to 1
gum/saturated Pot Di - now more like 1 to 1 to 1.5 gum, sensitizer,
water).  Everything goes on really smooth.
