Re: Miracle size for gum
I emailed Hercules and they sent me a bottle gratis. I know it has to be heated/ironed. I am not the one to give directions on this but Peter Blackburn is the one who originally told me about its use, and he is active on the alternativephotography.com website as are a couple of his articles there as well. He is an active gummist.
It is from Hercules, and on the label says Hercon 100. That is as far as I can help...but if I remember it was available at art stores as well?

Christina, aquapel sounds extremely plausible to my ears, since it's already used as an internal sizing agent in many papers which are friendly to iron processes. (Most notably pure pt which is incompatible with gelatin sizings AFAIK... Also new cyanotype and argyrotype which are pretty picky about paper.) OTOH, aquapel comes in different strengths and properties depending on the application (it's also used as a concrete additive for instance), so one has to grab the right one and use it in the right dilution in order to achieve with the purpose. Meanwhile, aquapel could be a trademarked name for a generic monomer/polymer, therefore I'm not sure how to ask about it to chemistry suppliers. Regards, Loris. 2009/10/10 Christina Z.
