After happily printing tricolor gum for decades by simply inverting the channels and printing greyscale separations, I've been experimenting with a more "sophisticated" approach, with less than satisfactory results.
Correction: In the lightness of the moment, I inadvertently misspoke about how I've generated separations for my tricolor prints in the past. Through most of the the 1990s, for example, I printed tricolor prints from separations printed from a laser printer, from bitmap files with curves constructed using Dan Burkholder's method. see for example:


It's only been since I've been using an inkjet printer, since 1998 or so, that I've been printing tricolors from inverted channels with no added curve --see for example


Thanks for indulging this clarification,
