Re: another 3 layer gum attempt

How long is your exposure, Paul, and when you put it in the developing water, does it "stream off" the image area immediately or gradually?
How do you make your negs?  What printer, ink, etc.?

Subject: another 3 layer gum attempt

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...
