Thanks for sharing your experiences with glut. I have two samples that Ryuji
Suzuki sent me and I have been awaiting balmy weather to size and dry my
glut treated Rives and Fabriano outdoors.

My own darkroom, even though well ventilated, is small, therefore making
glut fume buildup likely. And since I'm sensitive to Metol now (where I
wasn't years ago) I will exercise extreme caution when using glut.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Are you going to try and print with the paper?
