I think the "glopping" problem has to do with using "recycled" emulsion vs a "first melt." Some times when doing coating tests I have taken stripped off emulsion, added some DW, allowed it to swell and remelted. Well, tonight that gave instant glop. Melted some new emulsion and no problems. IDK why this happens but seems to be the answer.
BTW, remelted emulsion seems to be OK for coating but it loses sensitivity.
Erythritol may be helping out with the adhesion and cut edge problem. That's what I was testing when I made the glop.
More to come.
