Re: my first two gum prints
These are excellent, Charles, and not sizing seems to work fine for you. The neutral grey of the coats shows how well your pigments and pigment proportions are balanced; this is very good work for beginning tricolor gum.
I sometimes have seen blown highlights like this in one-coat gums where the pigment mix is very heavy and the density range of the negative too long to be expressed in one gum coat of that mix, but almost never in tricolor gums. How are you printing your negatives---what inks?
