Keith, that's breathtaking! Like it so much, can't wait to see other
prints with more gum layers... I also absolutely love the cracks -> it
looks like plaster indeed.
Meanwhile I just coated a sheet of aluminum with 1 part acrylic gesso + 1
part calcium carbonate powder + 1/2 part water mixture (gesso+water ->
2+1). Will sand it tomorrow a little bit (to lessen the brush marks caused
by using thick gesso) and try to print on it. The surface is pretty far
from being slick (like gesso w/o additives) after adding that much calcium
carbonate. Looks like gum may cling onto it - will see...
