Sorry, I didn't explain myself well. It prints with a "normal" gum
negative at a "normal" gum exposure time and has a "normal" number of
step wedge units between full tone and white. I don't think I'm getting
enough maximum density (it is too pale), thus (as stated in another
reply) I'm trying the Daniel Smith version of your favorite Yellow
(pigment PY110).
