Well, I just can't make this work at any dilution. Dry, the surface seems very rough compared to glyoxal and when the size does manage to survive development the highlights are very badly stained. Once wet, the sizing always swells and gets very slimy. I've asked Photo Formulary for suggestions, I'll keep using glyoxal until I sort it out. Was having relatively excellent results with it, but the worry of yellow stains showing up is always there.
But I gotta ask: you are supposed to dilute the glut concentrate with distilled water, correct? I diluted the 24% 1:10 to make 2.4% so maybe I goofed there..Although I did take a cautious sniff of the 'pure' 24% concentrate, and that's completely odorless, which surprised me after the warnings about the stuff.
