Ah, thank goodness, straight from the horse's mouth (it's just an expression, I'm not really calling you a horse, Hamish.) I'm not sure why I was exempting this kind of application anyway, but my definition has just been revised to include it.

This effect is created by printing the green layer with shorter exposure

It's really nice.


 Question,. How is the green of the seaweed isolated like that in a

David, I have no idea, since I've never worked very much in freeform
gum, so your guess would be at least as good as mine.
