    No, but many carbon printers use it. Not absolutely sure when and where the term originated. I may have seen it first in a technical paper by a fellow named Bob Nugent that was put up on the B&S website some years ago.

    Now Sandy, I've heard you call it "glop"!

    So, as a diehard purist, which is right?

    I think gloop would be a slightly thinner version of glop.

    Ron,

    Yes, I call it glop. When I responded earlier I just assumed that "gloop" was a spelling error. I am sure you have observed, as I have, that people in the UK don't know how to spell!! And their pronunciation is sometimes not good either.
    In any event we folks here in the US call the stuff "glop". Before there was glop I called it "pigmented gelatin solution."

    Glop does sound a bit gooier than gloop...

    But I have heard that it is an onomatopoeia for the sound of oatmeal or some other kind of mush being served in mess halls.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    If you are a carbon printer then it has to be Glop! Glop is good! Learn to make good glop and your prints will benefit for sure. Me I use 100 grams of gelatin, 50 of sugar and pigment from 6 grms to 14. There are many variables to consider. Find a standard formula and learn the process and then venture out. The waters are very choppy if you go out to soon.

    When I pour from an Erlenmeyer, it's more of a Glorp than a Glop

    You cook your oatmeal in an Erlenmeyer Flask?! That is hard-core chemicalosity.
