Re: Freezing gum solution


FOr a long time I knew something was missing from my prints. They have no flavor! My mind is already turning. Orange, sour apple, grape....................

I have a question for veteran gum users, or maybe those with long memories. Short background. I print in batches and make  enough gum solution containing gum, pigment and dichromate for a session. For 10 11x17 prints that amounts to 70 cc solution. The other day I made double the amount (that was a mistake on my part). At the end of the coating session I had a big batch of premixed gum solution with dichromate left over. Not wanting to waste perfectly good solution I froze it. Here is my question: does anybody think the solution is usable and what would be even more valuable, does anybody have experience with freezing sensitized gum solution?
