Doug,

I have seen prints that must have been coated in this manner - relatively narrow margins, while still having full coverage of the image area and retaining the distinct appearance of hand coating - and briefly wondered at the time about how precise the coat appeared yet, still had that hand coated aesthetic. Definitely food for thought. I have my humidity chamber tossed together and hope to put it to the test in the next day or two, I'll throw this coating technique into the mix to see if it helps. Thanks for the input.

Jeff
