I'm not sure what fish eyes are -- don't think I've seen them. But I
wonder -- has anyone who put a drop of Kremer anti-foam in the gelatin
gotten fish eyes?

Then about the silvering on the argyrotype... There may be no connection,
but -- we found that VDB never silvered out when it wasn't heat dried...
tho it often did (depending on paper and contrast) when it was heat dried.
There was quite a literature on the papers that did & didn't "plate out"
but it didn't happen when air dried at room temp.

Though this problem may not be that problem, I realize.
