Re: Seeking Information on 2 problems with Gum process
ONEOops hit send too soon....to answer your first question. To flatten wet paper and make it flat ... at the studio where I've been printing we have a big pile of 2' by 4' by 1" thick reclaimed cellulose ceiling tiles, a stack of about 20 to 30 deep. Finished prints go between the tiles starting at the bottom. Weight can be added safely to the top if necessary. The tiles act like a sponge drawing moisture out of the print while making it very flat. We also use sheets unprinted newspaper to protect the print and the tiles from ink which might rub off from movement. Hope that helps.
