Hey,
     I want to do a "yellowing" test. Anyone else done this yet and
therefore save me the hassle? Clay and Kerik? Altho I ordered the glyoxal
already...so it is a fresh batch.

This is what I have considered:

(one paper type at first--Fab Artistico)

glyoxal mixed in gelatin
glyoxal not mixed in gelatin but glyoxal bath later

paper left outside in sun in ziploc
paper left outside in sun in full air
(this will have heat as a factor, too, tho)

paper left inside in ziploc
paper left inside in full air

paper soaked and rinsed right away

paper inside in dark in full air
paper inside in ziploc in dark

Does this address all the possible ideas that have come up as to the cause?
Light and dark, Air circulation or no air, using paper right away or storing
for later. glyoxal in gelatin or not. What am I missing because I'm sure
there is something (don't tell me a brain or common sense). **Special
requests*, or others that would like do this with me (Don)?

It'll take me several months, so don't hold your breath. That is how long I
was gone from the paper that yellowed inside, in full air, room light, not
washed, and not used right away, and aquarelle. If there is any yellowing
then I can narrow down and do a second test thereafter.
