Yes, I'd like to see it. Can you email a pic to me offlist when you get a
I've only used white gauche on black paper so I'd like to see how an opaque
watercolor pigment looks with gum on a light paper, especially with the
quadtone system and a contone negative. (Whaddya call a digital negative with
halftone dots so small it appears continuous tone?). I'm assuming the
dichromate is the ammonium variety because of the (solubility) % solution you
cite. What brand pigment and type of light bank are you using...fluorescent,
photoflood, metal halide, or ___ ? An 1160 Epson or some other model?
Sorry for so many questions, but since I just started tweaking the Cone/Epson
combination any info is helpful in fine-tuning the results.
Anyone else doing this kind of thing for gum printing with quadtone/hextone
(models?) printers and inksets (Cone, MIS, etc.)?
Thanks for any info,
