Double coating

March 11, 2012

allcolorlightblog-blog asked: wondering about double coating large gum prints with emulsion+pigment…waiting for first application to dry, then recoating. have you ever tried? does it sound like it would work or do you think that the pigment will fall out of the print?

I haven’t tried double coating.  My sense is that it wouldn’t work as the second coat wouldn’t have anything to hold onto except the unexposed layer underneath and would most likely wash out when developed.  Let me know if you have any success.
