Been following this. I've done a gum or two and am not encouraged by the results. I'm interested in the whole sizing element. I know many papers come already sized, but either the sizing is inadequate for gums or it is lost in the shrinking process. When sizing, it's dipped into the gelatin, then a seperate hardener bath? or hardener is mixed with the gelatin solution?Judy Seigel <email@example.com>
PS to Jacek:
Often the best way to get a "black" in gum printing is to mix two or more
colors... for a long time I mixed a Rowney gouache "jet black" with a
strong red. There are also complements that mixed together make "black,"
or maybe something like burnt umber with indigo (which, depending on the
make and pigment of course, can have a lot of covering
