    Added photograph of Cyanotype that has been toned to the bottom of the page to show that you do not have to be stuck with blue..

    I just tried Strathmore Bristol, a very smooth paper, and the results were quite striking - quite a lot of detail and tonal range compared to what I've gotten in the past with cold press watercolor papers. The surface stayed quite smooth, although there was some minor roughing after all the washing was complete. Overall though, I think I like the results much better than rougher papers.

    I've used Strathmore Bristol for some salt prints and it works well for them as well (and doesn't fog the silver nitrate the way the Canon Montval has done) -- I may never use watercolor again, for anything but watercolors.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
