Hi there Judy,

Thanks for the information about your use of the
Kremer defoamer. I am going to pull out that
number of PF now and read what you have to say
about it. I had forgotten that you were the one
who originally recommend the product but now it
comes back to me.

I don't usually boil the gelatin when I make
carbon tissue, though I routinely heat it up to
about 130-40 F. What would be the advantages in
your opinion of boiling it? Do you think boiling
it will make the gelatin last longer in the
refrigerator? I am concerned that boiling it
might cause those little speckles you described
earlier! Got enough trouble with oil and bubbles
floating to the top of the tissue so sure would
like to avoid those nasty speckles!!

Sandy
