Sorry, Lois, I didn't make it clear.

After drying the gel, peel off the saran wrap. Puff some powder on the gel (where
you may have some sticky patches) spread and smooth the powder all over the gel, 
shake off excess powder and put into cassette with the film. Didn't notice any
decrease in 35S signal.
