Is this right?: coat your gum/dichromate, expose but not processing it and then recoating it with PT/PD then processing? I Definately worth trying.
I always dry the paper after each step. Dry the pt/pd, size the print, dry again, and then do each gum layer, drying in between.

(I'm not sure that I need the oxalic for Ziatype though)
Try the Fabriano Extra White Hot press - no pre-shrinking, only a 5 minute 1% oxalic acid soak and dry cycle is needed. It registers perfectly (at least up to the 12x20s I am doing)

It's all great fun. Strangely enough, the more prints you do, the better you seem to get. Funny, that.
