Re: A Monotype Question / Success ???

I think I have a success story. I first thinned the gumarabic and
it still did not go onto the plastic smooth. Then I decided to try
adding a bit of liquid soap (some strong stuff from the custodian).
It worked like a charm. I brushed on a nice flat even layer on 25
sheets and put them on the drying rack. I'll let you know how they
print from in a day or two.
