     I've read most of the modern books on gum and several of the old ones.
I can't get any where near an even coating--I get brush marks and uneven
spots. I've tried four different brands of gum, four different brands of
watercolor with each. I've added photo flo. I've added ox gall.
     I used to be a pretty good woodworker but I had the same problem with
varnish. In the end, I solved that problem by using oil finishes
     Anyway, you can see a sample of my paper after coating but before
exposure at Yes, I see the hair at the
top. Is this coating really as uneven as it seems to me? Is there enough
(too much?) pigment?
Thanks Charles Portland Or
