I soak it an a tray and then hang by a corner to dry

I use a product called Black Magic Additiv (LPE 510)
Which I add both to the emulsion and the developer.

I use one plactic film canister worth to coat about 15-20 metal plates.

I pour it on and then spread it with my fingers (wearing gloves)

I put the plate over a slightly smaller tray of hot water. But I lift it off
once I start to coat so that the gelatin gels quicker.
