    That's what I was taught years ago and it works well.

    I was taught that some of the components in spotone are not good for the liver. I'm not always that thoughtful of my liver, but there are other ways to damage it that are more enjoyable that licking spotone - like Scotch.

    I also read a trick somewhere that you can use a piece of clear acetate (over the print) for matching colors and densities by stippling on that first.

    I checked, and fortunately, there is no gum arabic or any other powder in any of my Ansel Adams books.

    However, he discusses the use of it in this book 'The Print' and shares Edward Weston's recipe. I tried it, and it works. The gum arabic supports the adhesion of dye to print, and can be used to adjust and match the gloss level. If you can't get your hands on Spotone, and don't wont to use SpotAll (don't see why, by the way), it the way to go.
