    Don't worry, I've not mastered anything yet either. I just dabble a lot. It's my usual style I already have gum printing lined up as the next thing for me to try. I have nearly all the materials I need; it's just bits and pieces (getting proper pipettes and not using straws as droppers like I do with cyanotypes, some sort of mixing dish, dustmask for extra protection when mixing the dichromate, etc) I need to get together now. I have the basic ingredients & paper.
    On the plus side, cyanotypes are pretty cheap to get into and prefer cheaper acidic papers than some alt processes. I'm still using the original 100ml of each solution I mixed up last April. There was a little mould on Solution A but a disposible wooden chopstick fished that out easily and I haven't had a problem with mould since then. Bit odd.

    Just received a wonderful cyanotype from Heather today, thank you.

    I have also just begun experimenting with cyanotype myself. The printing out process is somewhat different from what I am used to, but learning.

    With the colour paper, it's basically impossible to expose by inspection. Plus I'm only using an 8x10 contact proofer so not split-back anyway (and my only splitback frames are medium format sized) so I do testprints, covering up part of the frame and moving it along like you'd normally do, in 2minute increments for my UV facial tanning unit. That one took about a 4 minutes exposure.

    Just received Lillian's Platinum/Palladium print today. A lovely image of weathered roots, great detail, its a little jewel. Thank you.

    I like the paper, is this the cold press surface? I had picked up some recently, to try with cyanotype, but mine has a very smooth surface.

    Thanks, very interesting. Sometimes you need to see other people's work, especially in the alt. processes, because it can lead to you exploring new avenues of expression.

    Also, Carl & Geoff many thanks for the wonderful prints which you forwarded. Carl, yours was very thought provoking, well seen and I can imagine this as part of a series of images. Geoff, I just loved the glow and shine you achieved, plus the format was perfect.

    Cheers John

    I received Lillian's and Diane's prints yesterday. They're lovely, thank you Lillian's is neat - my husband commented it looked like a woodblock printing. Diane's is quite interesting. I like derelict scenes like that.

    Lillian's print was waiting for me when I got home last night. I like all the detail that you've captured in the roots and the hidden bricks. I even see something that looks like an eye looking out at me! How cool!
