On a related note, IŽd like to share what I did right now, some kind of
"Van Dyke/Gum print", and IŽd like to know if someone else had done
this.Am I joining the worst of both worlds, the possibility of yellow
stain of Van Dyke with the long development times of gum printing? My
motto of trying this was that the coat will be necessarilly thicker with
the gum, making denser browns in one coat - but I can be wrong. Is there
anything wrong with that?
Thanks in advance,
