    Thymol is a cheap and effective way to keep "bugs" from growing in glop. I've discovered a year old container of glop in the back of the fridge that was still clean and usable. Keeping containers, stirrers etc. scrupulously clean, and using sterile (boiled) water lessens the chances of starting off with an inoculated mixture.

    Dequalinium (available as an 'oral paint') is also an effective bug killer.

    Ok. This brings up another question, the relative humidity here is around an average of somewhere in the teens and often lower. I had read about curling and cracking and that is why I was thinking of saving the glop in the fridge and using as needed. If I make the tissue, dry it and freeze it will it stay flat and not crack.

    Just sealing in a bag would probably be enough, if not previously dried to the cracking point.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
