Hi, I'm Alex. Long time lurker and first time poster. Just graduated from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. I have a question about washing dry plate emulsions. I'm gearing up for my first production. According to The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes by Christopher James, when washing the noodled emulsion you should bundle the noodles in a sheer nylon fabric bound at the top by cotton string. Would a cotton cheesecloth be ok instead of nylon? PS. I've been a HUGE fan of PE and dwross's lightfarm. Between you guys and my book I think I can pull this off.
