    Hi all! I wonder how you feel about whether the gum has any major role when it comes down to it's SG (degrees Baume)?
    Also could it be one of the contributing factors regarding flaking?

    These images are from a Fun with Gum workshop we just had over the weekend..
    Over thirty images made with all kinds of success from excellent to lousy.
    I attribute lots of the lousy prints due to Operator Error.

    As you can see for this workshop we worked upstairs in my gallery for coating paper under the gallery tungsten lights, and we did employ some brush work this weekend
    as we were concentrating on Duo Tones primarily and for this type of work water hose and brushes reveal the first layer quite nicely.
