My first introduction to the gum bichromate process was via
Katharine's very informative web site "In Defence of Gum Bichromate"
This past November and December, I was collaborating with Michael
Andrews who had developed a positive process for gum called ferric
gum. Katharine had joined our forum discussion in search of a method
to extend gum's tonal range. She contributed results from a number
of ferric gum experiments and we all had many good and often heated
discussions on potential mechanisms and on the strengths and
weaknesses of this process. Her experience and knowledge of the gum
bichromate process made a positive difference
I think she has made a great contribution towards educating those who
wish to practice gum bichromate, and has asked for nothing in
return...that is rare! Thanks so much.
