What role does the Glyoxal play? Is it to harden, or maintain the semipermeable gel state?
If you actually have a gel state... is it more like syrup than a gel?
How long after prep. can you process the plates? (is there a known window, or does the surface remain permeable to water forever... will it dissolve away without the glyoxal?)
I think I am familiar with the observation you made about sensitization of such emulsions...
it has been observed before.
Unfortunately, I know more about gelatin than any good vegetarian ought to....
I should be ashamed!
You mentioned you hope "they" will manufacture it... is that part of the process difficult or time consuming?
Looking forward to those pictures you promised!
