    the one problem i have noticed is the plastic bumbs of the silk surface melt and become a smoother gloss.

    What plastic??
    Or do you mean the gelatine structure?


    Are there residues of the baryta adhering to the gelatine layer?

    I bet it's the microwave oven. They vary quite a lot in the evenness of their microwave distribution. With some, if you put in an even layer of something (say, pre-cut cheese slices), you'll find some are stone cold while others are bubbling away. With other microwaves, the distribution is much more even.

    Using a rotating platform sometimes helps. If you've got an oven without one, I know that they exist (or did exist) as add-on things. I've got one in mine that you rotate and then it slowly rotates back, like a wind-up toy.

    This sounds like the emulsion lift you can do with polaroids and warm water. It would be super-cool if you could do the same thing, emulsion on watercolor-paper that's a bit crumbled looks great!
