It was perhaps in the seventies in my work space. Not hot enough one would
think to contribute to melting the gel. I'm beginning to think that I brush
way harder when I paint on gum than most of you do because I sized with
acrylic for so many years and that is so tough that it just didn't matter.
Now when I try to print on shrunk but unsized papers that others show great
success with I get staining. Perhaps I am pushing the pigment into the paper
or in the case of the unhardened gel. just being too rough with it.
