  • Dry printing with Gampi

    Tried to print some of the very small copper plates done with photogravure with dry printing method on Gampi. The paper is so thin, about 13 gram, that perfect pressure alignment becomes critical, otherwise it will wrinkle. Never fails to amaze me, how delicate details get transferred beautifully on Gampi. Makes sense - on the more smooth paper you will get better details, hard to compete with Gampi, but what is more interesting, smooth tones get rendered more "tight", without grain or white spots, very, very smooth and solid. Every time I get frustrated with tones rendition on Revere, I should try Gampi.
