Just a quick note about Grafix Dura-Lar Wet Media film. Last night I coated some sheets with 8.5% gelatin using both a 110-gapped Meyer rod and also a comb. So far, both coatings are sticking brilliantly to this surface.
I also took two sheets and washed them thoroughly under water, hoping to get rid of any kind of subbing layer. I plan to coat these and I hope to see the emulsion peel off cleanly when dry. I'll also do a much thicker coating of pigmented gelatin on my last good sheet and see how it goes.
But anyways, it's entirely possible that Grafix Dura-Lar Wet Media will work. Has anyone else had direct experience with this product? If so I'd love to hear your impressions.
