    Magnetism and photographic imagery

    Could you employ magnets beneath the contact printing process of Cyanotypes to create special effects?

    No. The Iron salts present are not magnetic!

    Not even a little bit and even with salt, pepper, oregano and basil! NOT MAGNETIC!

    Some Stainless Steel is non-magnetic as well and it is basically iron!

    So are we saying ferric ammonium oxalate has no magnetic properties?

    Yes it has been interesting, and I could go on about how you can influence the magnetic characteristics of stainless steel, but it has absolutely nothing to do with making prints.
