    Gelatin sizing on Fabriano Aristico follow Clay Harmon's Gum Over article on www.unblinkingeye.com
    I understand the pd print is grainy, but I'm talking about the colored speckling throughout the image which is most evident in the white border. Am I correct in assuming the border was coated with gum? If all is going well, that border should be paper white when you're done. (Unless you don't want that, of course.)

    Jeremy,

    One more thing. If you haven't already done this, I would stongly suggest you print some gum layers by themselves, not over a pt/pd image. This will teach you a lot more about the process and you will get a better feeling for what's going on.
