Sort of a tangent on the GO on glossy.
Someone gave me some commercial prints to spray. Instead of pulling out the spray gun and sundry mess and cleanup, I opted to put them through the printer with the GO in it.
Soon as the first one came out in which I used only 20K of GO for the setting, I noticed the dull and hazy look of the GO on the glossy commercial print so I stopped the rest from continuing. What I got for a L* reading was a 3.834 on a subsequent shot with the same black area, and the GO covered one went up to 6.39. The haze looked odd too and came out with sort of a burple tint (magenta+blue) appearance. I’m not too crazy about feeding it through again as it make make it more hazy and a different tint.
Does the GO change color over time and/or produces a duller finish? I don’t know what printer they came off of, but I will take a hunch and say the person had them done at Costco.
Thanks, and not looking forward to spray-gunning this stuff! Ugh!
