    Wasn't there some experiments with latex years ago???
    :-0

    Thing about vegetarianism is... vegetarians tend to replace meat with dairy produce.

    I.e: Food products made from the lactose secretion of cows that is no longer needed to feed the baby calf that has just been slaughtered for veal.

    I can understand Vegans getting hot under the collar about gelatine, but vegetarians?

    My cousin went vegan for a while. He lived in a damp house. Determined not to use any animal produce at all he redecorated using wallpaper paste guaranteed free of animal products.

    Then his wallpaper fell off...

    Steve;

    When I was a child, wall paper paste was made from pure wheat paste. I remember helping mix the stuff.

    Hmm, fresh film stinks like some benign organic solvents, and the roll films smell like the glue on the tape that you seal a used roll with. Kodak Park used to smell like that.

    Lots of gelatin can smell as well, particularly mixed up and going bad. I have not really enjoyed Jello since I went to work for Kodak.

    I was gifted the remains of a biochem reseach division stores of a company's chem stocks after a bankruptcy. In it there was a stock of fish gelaton. I was never able to get a good sizing when using it with my cyanotyoe efforts. So down the toilet (for real) it went.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Hi All,
    Sorry that I have not participated lately. Here are 2 examples of emulsions containing no gelatin. At risk of sounding like a broken record B&S has a supply of Kuraray R1130, which is what I currently use in place of gelatin.
    Cheers Bill
    P.S. Sorry if I have posted these befor.
