outdoor gum demo
Our graphic association is taking part in an arts festival in May. We will be working outdoors in various processes, and I got the bright (or dumb) idea to make gum prints in a tent, exposing them to sunlight. Has anyone ever tried anything like this? Is a tent light-fast enough for this? I was thinking I could have sheets of paper already coated in gum/pigment mixture and stored in a light-fast box to save having to allow them to dry while nobody is allowed to leave the tent! How long can you leave coated sheets before exposing? Can I do this the day before?
Any tips appreciated. Thanks!
