    Would something like drafting mylar or the clear film used for making overhead projector transparencies be a suitable base for your experiements, rather than actual film base?

    Craig;

    Thanks, but that won't work. It has to be a special subbing applied with a mixture of ingredients that change polarity from 'plastic' to 'gelatin'. That is a gross over simplification.

    I'm sure they'd quiver with fear now that they've all but driven a stake into the heart of traditional materials. "Retired employee resurrects traditional products and makes senior management look like....well....since they're yellow...Brassholes!!!" You go guy!

    PE, stuff's way above my head. But I'd love you to spread the word. Maybe one day I'll be able to [/have to] soup my own stuff. Best of luck.

    Something like the dye transfer sheets that have been recently revived? Or the processor cleanup sheets I've seen that have a layer of gelation on it already? Saw some on Ebay a while back.

    PE,

    Keep at it. As I said in an recent thread when you were getting lots of negative feedback from the EK bashers, it's great to have a true expert among us. We're all learning from your posts regardless of how long we've been at this. Thanks.

    The dye transfer sheets might work but already have silver in them. The cleanup sheets might work. I was looking at them recently.
