Well, I don't know much about liquid emulsion - just what I have read in
C. James book and this list - but the fact that I have never saw melting
silver gelatin paper emulsion makes me think that there must be some way
to "harden" the liquid emulsion and prevent melting. Formaldehyde?
Glyoxal? Chrome Alum? Glutardehyde?...
