In that case the question is :
Why a cyanotype at all ?
I also tried to tone cyanotypes to try to get some dark-blues, and
after several tries I just switched to gum with prussianblue (or
whatever blue) with ebony black (or whatever black). Lots of
combinations, lots of different dark-blues.
The luster.........(desirable the appearance in water)..........; apart
from oil- and bromoil prints I never got a real nice 'luster', and when
you follow the different threads during 10 years of alt-list , there is
no real method.
Bon courage,
