Thanks Christina. I have achieved yellow happiness. With the new
pigment, my first prints were too yellow :-)

Actually they have a slight "split tone". The deep shadows were
slightly cool, the midtones and highlights warm. Time for another tweak
of the curves, one more day of test printing, then stop with the tests
and print/play for real for a while. Gum is too variable for perfection
quests. Gum printers have to learn to embrace that flexibility or be
constantly frustrated.
