Dave, I'm not sure this is quite right. I did two gumoil prints, a long time ago, just to see what it was about, but oil products give me a headache, so I never pursued this further. But the way I remember it working, the gum was exposed with a positive rather than a negative, developed and carefully dried, and then when the oil paint was applied, the oil adhered where there was no exposure, where there was plain paper, and didn't adhere where there was hardened gum, which the oil wouldn't stick to.
P.S. I just remembered that I do own a copy of Karl's book, so I dug it out and it looks as if I'm remembering it right.
