Re: gumprint versus oilprint

Being back on line I take the opportunity to declare that Henk's comparison is NOT fair. The face in that wonderful chalk red is bound to wipe the dark (black?) oilprint off the map... Which IMO doesn't prove that gum is better than oilprint (tho of course we know it is), but simply that chalk red looks delicious and black oil (at least on the monitor) doesn't.

That's maybe the 2nd (or 3rd?) print in the red color Henk has shown... What he hasn't told us, however, is which make available in the continental United States has it -- or... if one decided to hazard
mixing it, what might work?
