If you're doing multicoat gum intended to look "photographic", starch size
may not please you. Aside from fact that it tends to wash off in
development, so at least theoretically should be re-done each coat, it
yields a somewhat grainy texture in the image -- at least mine did, tho
it's possible that was something in my usage & not intrinsic.
