Hi Pete, thanks. If it won't coat on Yupo, what is the advantage of
using Gloy then? Is it only the possibility to use acrylic colors?

BTW, I made 3 more coats to my first temperaprint in the weekend (using
a better, bigger and smoother foam roller - following Dave's pigment
mixing instructions, I didn't get undissolved pigment this time; thanks
Dave). I did go for the shadows; with short exposures (half the exposure
time of the first two coats) Unfortunately the density build is very
very slow. Yes, there was an improvement but very less compared the
first two coats - it's like the self masking in POP prints; the more
relief the print becomes, the harder is coating the shadows (relief
parts). I can clearly see the egg is more present in bas-relief portions
of the print but less in the relief parts (I'm not sure if I managed to
describe it). So the short exposure didn't work much - higlights
dissolved and the less coated shadows very little changed. What is my
problem? Do you think I'm coating with less solution than what is
