Re: brush vs tray size for gum

And maybe humidity has more of an influence on everything than we've taken into account; maybe the reason for differences in observations between different gum printers is as much a function of the environment as of other variables we have noted. This thought came to me after reading Keith's observation that a damp paper clears better for him than a drier paper; I thought, well, maybe that's why I was able to print tricolors on unsized paper without stain for years (although I can no longer find a paper that will do that) because I was printing in a very humid environment. And other differences may also be related to this as well; who knows?
