    Micheal,

    How do you find this out?

    I was also a bit overwhelmed with the choices out there. That would simplify things for me.

    I can just go to manufactures' website to find this out?

    Thanks,
    Tsuyoshi

    Tsuyoshi,

    You can check the manufacturer's literature, and you can look on the back of the tubes as well, but that can be somewhat hard at times, and not all the manufacturers have decent literature.

    Also, gum printing is somewhat of a crossover process, and the knowledge of paint is truely outside the realm of knowledge most photogrphers have. To bone up on this, I recommend this site:

    http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/water.html

    There's more there than you can possibly imagine. That site lists paints by color and brand, and indicates the makeup of the paints as well. There's also color theory, paint background information, and much, much more. It's a great reference and starting point for learning about the pigments used in the paints, and I recommend everyone interested in the process to do some reading on that site.

    The whole idea of gum over platinum or paladium is intriquing to me. When 100% gum prints can look so great, why use an expensive process like platinum as a foundation? I realize that many notable photographers have done so. I'd be interested to hear what you all think the combination accomplishes as opposed to the alternative of multiple applications of gum.

    Gum over platinum has a different look than pure gum. Plus, pt/pd printing is quite economical, despite rumors to the contrary. If you take into account the labor to produce a 1 or 2 layer gum over pt/pd compared to a mutilple coat gum (say 3 or more layers - some gum printers use many coats), gum over platinum is cheaper if you place any value on your time. Below is an example of the same negative printed as gumover pt/pd and 100% multi-coat gum.
