    Before I start experimenting with Gum printing, and perhaps gum-overs, I thought I would ask, those who have more experience.

    Will Potassium Dichromate solutions damage the common household stainless steel sinks?

    I spilled some in mine and never noticed anything, so I would say no.

    Not with normal use, fixer will damage your sink & put holes in it if left there !

    Just make sure you wash everything well at the appropriate time.
