    I'm printing a bunch of POP and Van dyke prints, and some might need a bit of spotting
    POP is gold toned and varies widely as to how long.
    Any recommendations?
    Thanks, Jamie Young

    Jamie,

    I use water colors. I have quite a few on hand that I use for Gum Printing but I think you would find that a small tube of burnt sienna and a tube of a black would work for you. Put a very small amount of each on a small plate and mix to the color you need. Remember that a little goes a long way and that it will dry darker than it first appears. Test on a scrap print.
