Anyone know anyone (besides me) that is working with this?
I am interested in methods of increasing the water resistance of seaplant gelatins and fucoids... some kind of hardening agent... do aldehyde compounds and such work on sea gelatins?
Also, there is a type of seaweed here that responds to light... contact exposures are very long and images fade in a day... any ideas for fixing seaweed?
Also, I have found a red algae that produces a gelatin that gives a creamy gloss coat to my platininum prints while adding considerable depth to the blacks (more than commercial coatings I have tried)... most sea gelatins I find on drying actually reduce dmax... any ideas about the perminence of these types of coatings?
Cheers & Thanks... Annie
