Hi list.
I am just beginning to make some gum prints and have a question concerning print clearing. 
I know some folks clear their prints in either a 1% up to 5% solution of potassium metabisulphite for 2 to 5 minutes.  My question is, do you agitate your print while its in this solution or do you just let it soak.
