Mowiol was: Stock Paint:Gum Solutions?

Hi Guido,

Ii have been trying different pva's in the past from the famous gloy to other glues and mowiol. They all printed slower than gum and dont have the feel of gum. The tackines you describe I noticed too.

What I do like is the
fact that a mixture of Mowiol, paint and pot dichromat does not seem
to get bad, even after 2 weeks.
Could this be interpreted as the absence of a dark reaction with PVA? Or is it more a result of the slower crosslinking of PVA's, also responsible for the lower printing speeds.
Does a sheet of coated paper keep well too?
