Re: another 3 layer gum attempt

You are doing good, Paul!  Just a guess, but I think that a less dense negative is the answer.

Hello everyone...hope you had a nice weekend.
I tried another 3 layer gum print (same image as before) and althought the colors are better than the last time I did 3 layers only, I'm not getting enough color down to give my print a nice strong density. I'm getting good strong color in the clear borders...
I'm getting good clearing in approx 20-40 minutes...
My guess is I should be using a less dense negative. Do you all concur?
Thanks to everyone for your help...
