Hi Keith,

Thanks for saying about "selling". Selling is selling.

Is MOWIOL similar to the PVA as in Elmers School Glue? I've used the latter and found it to be intriguing to use - but the contrast seems extremely high. So perhaps that's why the images are built up in stages? And with enough passes, you get a relief? With such hard-edged processes, I suspect you can thicken the emulsion and get relief more easily.

I regret that we haven't met. Sandy and Mark have both told me about your interesting work.

Best,
Sam Wang
