I just started doing gum with graphite pigment. I bought a tube from Danied Smith, it is called graphite grey. This is the pigment that is used to make pencils for those that are not very familiar. It is kind of silvery grey but it can be quite dark. It is really a beautiful alternative to lamp black. I am on a second gum layer and just realised that I have not preshrunk the paper. It is impossible to register the second layer. Oh well I will finish just to have an idea for the two pass tonality.
Has anybody tried it?
