    Yes, I am up to my (insert whatever anatomical part here) in alligators right now and have little time for APUG or the computer for that matter.

    I can say though that you can harden home-made coainings to be just about equivalent to most commercial coatings. You may have to use a prehardener in some cases, but it does work.

    One of the things that makes lith printing interesting is the variety of tones that can be obtained based on grain size and halide content, various papers having their unique characteristics. If the practical aspects of creating a stable emulsion can be achieved, it occurs to me that hand made emulsion making might offer a new direction to take to make up for some of the variety that has been lost as so many papers have disappeared. I have some experience with lith printing, but none with emulsion making. This is something I would like to explore further.

    Hi John,

    I would be delighted if you would make up a batch of one of the paper recipes on The Light Farm and try it with lith printing. All of the recipes are 'stable', but it would be very interesting to experiment with customizing tweaks.

    Thanks for the great idea.

    John;

    I have made this the goal of the last several years of my life and it can be and has been achieved. You should read more posts in this forum.
