Could it be Platinotype and NOT Cyanotype? I clearly remember there was
something like "...gelatine sized paper is no good for Platinum
printing..." in Mike Ware's site... ITOH, there are nice Cyanotypes on
gelatine sized(!) glass by Galina... Maybe we should ask to Galina if
she had noticed any ill effects of gelatine with her Cyanotypes...
