I have worked a lot with cyanotype on top of van dyke, experimenting
with different types of sizing in between the two.

If you use gelatin and harden it, cyanotype would not bleach vandyke.

However, I liked some bleaching and often overexposed van dyke, so
sized with just a very thin layer of gelatin and allowed the image to
get bleached a bit by cyanotype.

Difficult to have control over this bleaching, so one has to be
willing to chose one good out of three unfortunate prints.

Regards to all,


Please, have a look at my website:
