    That's ferric oxalate, not ferric ammonium oxalate? How much do I use in 100 ml of solution?

    I first read this thread last year sometime and thought I'd conduct my own little experiment, for over a year now I have had a tea toned Cyanotype on a sunny window cill. It hasn't faded one bit.

    Dear PS, alas I have found this to be very true, someone writes about some process or other and makes various statements, these are then taken as gospel and repeated by everyone else. I have tried various processes and always found it best to say nothing and conduct my own experiments.

    Perhaps I have gone over the top writing this, but, well, you've got to say something at some time haven't you (hastily paraphrasing Mandy Rice-Davies)

    Just what is considered an "Archival" cyanotype?

    I have two images which I bought many years ago. They are cyanotypes made in 1887 and are still beautiful with no bleaching apparent, I doubt that thay had very good care prior to m purchase, and they have been displayed on various walls in my home for at least 30 years.

    Back to the original question, I have used and like Dr. Ware's method, but most often use the original method when making cyanotypes.
