    I have a palladium print that has a small area that needs to be spotted. I plan on printing over the palladium with cyanotype. I figure to keep the tones the same I need to spot it BEFORE printing the cyanotype, but will the spot pigment run when I process the cyanotype?

    Is it better to wait and try after printing the cyanotype or to just start over and do a better job of keeping the dust out next time?

    You can do it successfully either way. For gumover platinum, I usually spot my platinum print, then apply the gelatin sizing prior to gumming. This works very well.
