Re: another good yellow for gum
Good to know it is your yellow of choice Marek.
Btw my stock solution is then diluted with gum a couple
times at time of use so I may come close to your 1 tube/250ml gum..
I am surprised it goes well with indanthrone--I have a
tube of that so I just must give it a try!

PY 150, Daniel SMith brand has been my yellow
of choice for about a year or two now. It is very permenent and very
transparent. Mixes beautiful greens with a number of blues including
indantrone (I frequently use it as a blue with a "punch"). It seems to
be much stronger (maybe the correct word is intense) then other yellows. I use
it at half strength as compared to magenta and cyan. One tube mixed with 250
ccof gum. A tube of that yellow goes a long way. While in masstone it looks
brownish, but it dilutes to a very clean yellow.
