I've been using it for gum prints, too, and use it straight from the  
bottle (no dilution)--brushing on one thin coat-- which seems to work  
really well for me.  I seem to get much better results than with the  
gelatin sizing.  The most color layers I've done, using PVA, has been  
6, I think-- with no need to repeat the coating.   I like that very  
slight sheen from the PVA, too.
