If we try to match the negative to the paper/emulsion when making one-step gums, what does that bode for tri-color or multiple layered "mono"chromes from a single neg?
Should each tricolor neg be matched the same way, or would we end up with mud, with so much heavy printing?
Same with single neg type gums, should we use a longer scale neg knowing that we're going to print 3 or more times at different times/ratios/etc...?
