Roger, I also have this "scum" on glossy prints (Epson 1200 - Generation ink - Epson Photo Paper). I have no idea what it is but would like to know. If others are NOT having this problem, then I wonder why we are. I've been printing on Royal Plush and like it, but I have been un-impressed with my results on glossy.
