    If you plan to be a great carbon printer you might want to remember the words of the "ghost" Hank Williams in David Allan Coe's The Ride.

    He said "Drifter can ya make folks cry when you play and sing?
    Have you paid your dues, can you moan the blues?
    Can you bend them guitar strings?"
    He said "Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside?
    Cause if you're big star bound let me warn ya, its a long, hard ride"

    Mind if I PM you with some more specific questions? I don't want to hijack this thread just for my sake.
    Sure, feel free to PM me with questions, or if they are general in nature to carbon you might want to ask them on my Yahoo forum. Several persons on that forum are interested in tri-color carbon and might be able to answer your questions better than I can.

    It is a good thing that you both do not know Florence Flask!

    She was a very handy adjunct to Ehrlenmeyer Flask and others.

    Hey thanks for the heads up, I didn't know that existed. I'll definitely head that-a-way!

    Oh now I see the source of confusion. In the UK it's spelled "gloup".
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.

    The person who picked Glop for the term to describe carbon pigment/gelatin must have been having a bad day.

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/glop

    Definition of GLOP

    1: a thick semiliquid substance (as food) that is usually unattractive in appearance
    2: tasteless or worthless material

    — glop·py\ˈglä-pē\ adjective

    Examples of GLOP

    I remember the glop they used to feed us for school lunch.
    <the restaurant served glop that brought back unpleasant memories of my high school cafeteria>

    Origin of GLOP
    origin unknown

    First Known Use: circa 1944
    For me it's like this:

    1: mine is a very attractive.
    2: mine tastes like, well, sugar and jello, that's J- E- L- L- O- when you sing it.
    Worthless? Come on, it fantastic and the results are getting better all the time.

    There are most likely several, if not many, sources for "Glop", with me included. I remember getting tired of typing in (on the old Carbon List) "pigmented gelatin" all the time. "Glop" seemed approbiate to me. Back deep in the archives will probably be a short discussion on the word somewhere.

    Even though I have called them my Jello Prints for years, somehow, the deep thick blackness that they start as inspires "Glop" more than attractive tastiness. But the results....definitely more filling and great taste.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    So it's less filling and has great taste, sounds like a food commercial. How about Midnight Infinity? Or just "MI"

    If I wasn't indentured here and going on a journey out west I would have more time to make carbon prints. There just isn't enough time to do it all, I've had to proportion everything which is too bad, I need to cut back and get closer to center.

    It should be about time to start planing for Newport!

    I figure it's onomatopoeia for the sound it makes being poured out.

    I guess it's onomatopoetic license, then.
