With silica he was able to get a 25 but backed off to a 22 as he was getting too many brush marks with the overload of silica.
    Okay had a look at the notes but cant see any image scans, no problem i know its best to see in person. In relation to dmax, what scale are you refering to 17,22, 25, is that steps? Personally i understand dmax readings as 1.3 1.4 or 1.5, etc.. can you tell me what your numbers equate to in relation to a densitometer reading.

    thanks

    Dick,
    Could you please give us the exact name and source of the fumed silica you have been using? I AM NOT NIT-PICKING ! there are 1) different size particle, some for stir-in, some should be milled. 2) There are Organo-treated (hydrophobic)fumed silicas! Untreated fumed silica is very hydroscopic. I think that which you are using is very relevant.
    Great worck, by the way. I never woulda thought about trating the paper with DRY fumed silica.

    So would this silica also work when applying emulsions like the Rockland or Rollei Black Magic? Seems intriguing.

    We use the most common hydrophilic version, nothing fancy.

    I am not sure it would work with something emulsified like paint. We've only used it with not emulsified coatings, but then you never know. I tried mixing it in gelatin to coat paper for final support for carbon. Nada. I think in inkjet paper it is press on with rollers.

    Does this style of mask provide adequate protection when using the "smoke in a bag"?
