Maybe there's just as much artistic-merit in simply painting the emulsion onto the plate/paper before exposure? Depending on how gloopy and sticky it is, you might be able to get some nice shapes out of it.

Scratch that, forget what I wrote, noone steal my idea. I'm going to get a paintbrush and a bottle of liquid-light on the way home, and get practising my chinese calligraphy...
hi dr c

with coating your own you have an open slate. its much more versatile
than pre bought papers &c ... once you understand how the emulsion sticks ( or doesn't )
or hardens, ( or doesn't ) or ? there are ways of doing all sorts of fun stuff ...
