I got curious about how an old-school gelatin plate would print compared to the synthetic version so I cooked up a couple of plates and did a test drive.
The old-school plate has definite advantages in print quality especially in pulling ghost prints, but has to be refrigerated in between printing sessions and deteriorates over time. The Gellliplate is indestructible and seems to produce a crisper print although the ghosts are fainter. Both the synthetic Gelliplate and the home made kind have secured a place in my studio's bag of tricks. I am excited to begin printing on cloth soon.
