Pics of your brush/es for gum printing.
Do you use only one brush or do you also do smoothing after application?

I use one brush - one for blue pigments, one for red pigments and one for yellow pigments. I dont use a smoothing Brush but might try that on my next Gum print

One different brush for each color and no smoothing brush. I have tried foam brushes but they didn't worked for me. I have tried an airbrush but with no conclusive results. Maybe a better airbrush would work. I am curious, has anybody else tried airbrushes? And with what results?

Thanks Dan & Bob!
Are the Richelson brushes synthetic? If they are don't the fibres bunch up leaving gaps/stripes as you pass over the paper?

Taking the mickey...
That kind of brush only welcome when used for scrubbing toilets.
We have some great synthetic brushes here but are useless.
