Thanks for posting this, Charles.
I never double coated because I trusted Don Bryant's test from a couple
years back which said it didn't make enough of a difference.
Your page loaded fine, and quick for me.
Question: what were your exposure times for the four? Or, 2:1 vs 1:1? Did
you do a side by side test of all four at the same exact time? I love the
side by side grid comparison. It's a "quick read".
I am exposing my 2:1 for 6 minutes under UV, single coat. It is a beautiful
deep thalo color, and not at all flat. I can send you a scan offlist (don't
have a website yet up and running)
