Re: gum curves
I find that my description of the "fisheyes" is far from accurate. I've attached a small JPEG of what they look like on the first coat. By and large, repeated brushing covers them up.
I think tomorrow I'll buy a different color of paint--one that I can use in a print that will give me some idea of what kind of range I am getting in an image as well as the step strip and the chartthrob.
