    HI,
    Seeking feedback/input from those whom may have experience using Dextrin to size the papers they use. I am interested in comparing this to the use of arrowroot; particularly with the Pt./Pd. process solutions on Rives BFK, and Arches Platine (pretty well sized already).
    There's not much specific info. out there, but I guess I am curious as to users' experiences, where they may have sourced it ( grocery store, a chemical reseller)/ the type of dextrin , any known issues, and do you prefer this to gelatin, or arrowroot.
    Thanks
