Hi All,

In a similar way to Scott, I am up to my neck in the gum wars and have a
couple of questions viz;

I read somewhere in the 'canon' that good gumprints should not have a
shine to the surface. After 3 or 4 coats mine do shine slightly . I have
never seen a gumprint in the flesh so I must ask.
Question 1.
     a) Shine or no shine?
    b) If no shine, how can I avoid it?

I am trying to build up an image by the application of thin coats of
pigment/gum. I've tried long exposures with little gum/pigment, short
exposures with little gum/pigment and the same with lots of
gum/pigment. The images lack 'punch' . All parts of the image seem to
come up together..

Question 2. How do get that shadow/highlight thing going?
