Let me make sure I understand what you're saying; are you saying that in
one case you put the yellow on second, after the cyanotype, and got a
yellow pigment stain, and in the other case you put the yellow on first
and got no yellow pigment stain, and in both cases everything else was
the same? And does this mean that you know certainly that the amount of
pigment in relation to gum was the same in both cases, either by careful
measurement or by using the same mix in both cases?
