I found a product which sounds interesting for those who want to print gum
on impermeable and/or rigid surfaces like Yupo, aluminum sheets, wooden
painting boards ect. ect... This product is also interesing for gumoil,
since gumoil is done with oil paints on paper -> which is not a good
combination for those who like / want longevity with their works. If I can
print on wood I want to try gumoils. (Have tried with paper, got
interesting / promising results but didn't like the oil stain on the back
of the paper at all!)

See the product page here: http://tinyurl.com/3s3w9e (read to bottom)

Has anyone used this (or any similar) product before? I'm still highly
interested in printing on impermeable media like Yupo or aluminum sheets -
 giving me five important advantages: 1. cheaper price (Fabriano Artistico
is quite expensive to me compared to Yupo or aluminum sheets), 2.
dimensional stability (no shrinking step / no registration problems), 3.
quick drying (faster working), 4. easier reusability in case of bummers
(you can be harsh while erasing with Yupo / aluminum and such), 5. better
longevity compared to paper - but haven't found a reliable / easy to me
method. Keith, I envy your ability and patience in printing on aluminum!

Any suggestions for / experience with similar products?

Thanks in advance,
