When I was testing my multiply melted emulsion, (tripple melt), I noticed very little haloing around the trees if any. Thats interesting. But the image was too contrasty for my liking.

it to be not close to heat ( cleveland clinic fire ) ...
i have maybe a litre of water glass, one of these days i will put dye in it to see if it takes it
and then see how it washes out .. probably the wash-out will be the problem ... and contaminate the emulsion ...
unless it is coated on a sheet of plastic and just placed between the plate or film and the plate / film holder ...
Many people try things though when they don''t know what they are dealing with. I was not commenting on your post.
