RE: Dry mounting gum prints
> Glad you had no tonal inversions! I hate them-though even worse is a
Yes any inversion is certainly serious. I'm blessed with a healthy rectum
though I know some gum printers that aren't.
Couple of serious questions... can you remove the prints from that backing
board if you want?
In a word no. If I had used the Seal Fusion dry mount tissue it could
possibly be removed. For the record though I'm not mounting to matt board
but rather to another sheet of high quality printing paper.
Does the heat from the dry mounting press melt the gum at
all? (I'm assuming it didn't)
No there is no melting of the gum image though I imagine that could be used
as a creative gesture if one were so inclined. My dry mount press
temperature is calibrated using Seal temperature indicator strips so it does
not get too hot. But I can tell you from experience that it can get very
hot. Sometimes I use it to iron my underwear in the winter!
