    I assumed he meant coating the paper with gelatin prior to coating it with the liquid emulsion.

    I did. I was not aware that there was gelatin in the liquid emulsion and so I bought photographic gelatin on top of that. I have seen the results of this liquid emulsion on Frabriano paper and it does not compromise the texture of the paper at all. I think an explicit gelatin primer, especially a strong one would. I used a minimal and thin gelatin layer on some of my Japanese papers and they look nice. We'll see how they hold up in the rest of the process.

    BTW - Eddie, thanks for sharing.

    Yes. It's a silver gelatin emulsion, but that doesn't mean you can't coat the paper with gelatin first. With a thin paper, a pre-coat could help strengthen the paper. I thought that was what you were asking.
