Paul, with gum, you were using negatives calibrated for pt/pd, right?
I'm asking because I can't print 3-5 layers on Artistico w/o stain,
with any of the 8-9 pigments I have on hands, and I use digital
negatives calibrated for trad. cyanotype. Maybe you can do it because
you use high DR negatives - which makes the difference along with the
pigments you use... I may try using negatives calibrated for vandyke
if that's the case. Even I don't find sizing too much extra work, it
would be good to eliminate an extra step...
