<< Bockingford will stand six coats of gum without any additional sizing.
Terry, I don't know if I can get Bockingford here in the US. Is it a
watercolor or printmaking paper? What is the weight and surface?
>> For absolute consistency and putting belt and braces on it I will, for
commercia gum prints, size with a 1% gelatine size between coats.
And do you harden the size? With glyoxal or formaldehyde?
>> Now I make my prints with acrylics which seem to give even better results.
Does that mean you mix acrylic color with gum instead of watercolor with gum?
In what sense are the results better? Better in saturation? registration?
number of multiple coatings? .....?
I am still in the very beginning of my experiments w/ gum, so I would
appreciate any help that will hopefully shorten my experiments before I can
get reasonably repeatable results.
Thanks in advance!
