Re: Unknown areas in Gum printing?, etc.
LOLOL yeah, you ain't a kiddin', don't you remember when I took up Terry King's suggestion to use unhardened gelatin for a size and got wonderful black squares of no image because, OF COURSE, the am di in the gum/pigment mix LOVED the unhardened gelatin and hardened that into a nice complete layer, too. So much for 250 bloom gelatin and all that.

Oops! Sorry for mis-quoting, it was Marek then... Anyway, that could be better than trying to print on unhardened sizing (+ w/o struggling to buy a locally restricted chemical) - at least, that's how I take it ;) Regards, Loris. -----Original Message----- From: Christina Z.

If the highlights are protected, there will be slight tone in them with the di/gum layer, which adds an overall dullness to the image. But what do I know, I'm one of those glutaraldehyde addicts, you know... Chris
