Re: Pronto plate fanatic
Late reply, but I love that response, lovestofish. I too have done some Pronto Plate printing and quite like it. I did find it quite the challenge to keep the "white" areas clean. I added powdered gum arabic to my water AND lemon juice! Next I will be trying the toothpaste as well as increasing the GA. The only thing I would add to assist original question asked would be to try another ink. Personally, I used Gamblin's Portland Intense Black Relief Ink, but, then again, maybe that was also contributing to not being able to keep the plate clean, as you suggested.
