Re: carbon transfer (mainly: digital negatives)

Hi phritz.

If it's cheap and can is listed under "technical gelatin", then it's not
"real" rabbitskin glue but hide glue (= very high bloom gelatin?) instead.
Your relatively high sugar content is already telling me something; hide /
rabbitskin glue is pretty brittle when dry, therefore you needed higher
content of plasticizer, right?
