      HI + Thanks so much Dave.
      Enjoying this group, great to share info. I hope to put some pics up when I get a chance. Today I was working with Suminagashi inks on very fine tissue weight Mulberry paper.
      Another world....I get transported!

      thanks also for the offer on carragheenan
      costs me $55 AUD for 500g here
      do you sell it cheaper?

      cheers
      Jan
