Re: gum mixes
I thought for a moment the list was dead--no posts at all until yours for days!
You all made me decide to track down some lumps and try it. Henry gave me a source for Kordofan in GB which not only has that, but other historic pigments and substances--very cool place.
I've always used powder and whipped it up in the blender.
Hey, here's a fun recipe from a patent--a powdered sensitized formula by a Joseph Sury from 1908; just mix n' go:
A dry mix of 20 parts gum, 1 part sugar, 4 parts pot bi, 20 parts pigment, this powder is dissolved in 2x its weight of water at time of use to form a sensitizing liquid.
