     Please let us know what concentration you use...how many grams (or milligrams, given how light the silica powder is) per liter you mix  And, is there a special mixing method?  I would like to try it this way because the rolling and squeegeeing method can easily be messed up by "graceful" people like me!  LOL!!!

that's the way I use it  . always have 10 liter of dilute fumed silica in
my lab . But I do not mix it with my acid bath. I acidiy first wash and
befor drying put the paper in the fumed silica bath.  I 've just used it
for platinum and cyano.
