Re: Gum printing technique

Don and All,
                      Yes, looking at the video for the second time I see the gloves, but strange he was not wearing them during the initial mixing and roller coating procedures when he would have been most vunerable to splashes on his hands, fingers and arms from the Amm. Dich.  It looked like a strong saturated solution, too.
                        Maybe there's something to discuss in this video..............?

             Yes, very interesting in as far as Attardi is not wearing any protective gloves and, in general, looks to be a very sloppy worker. Not a good example to any beginner looking for an intro to Gum printing.


              The large tranny of the female image must have cost a bomb.


But very interesting. But, no pros and cons. (Cryptic British humour, Loris.)


Have a nice holiday.
