Re: carbon transfer (mainly: digital negatives)

because the art supply store i buy my stuff from sells it cheaply in big units. they also have it listed under the name "technical gelatin" - so i guess it behaves a lot like normal gelatin. i haven't noticed any differences to normal gelatin yet. i use it for sizing without hardening. i should probably make a face to face test with some knox gelatin from the supermarket.


both are on homemade tissue (glop: 20gr rabbit skin glue + 15gr sugar + 3.5gr lamp black (powdered) + 250ml water)
spirit sensitized with: 2x 4ml per 8x10 (20ml acetone + 20ml 2.5% dichromate sol.)

hi phritz,

why do you use rabbit skin glue instead of gelatin?
