But the best method would be an oil-print. There you could reach both
goals : dark-blue and a real luster possibility and as an extra:
permanence. The permanence of toned cyano was often discussed in the
past on the list, what I remember it was often mentioned that the color
changes after some time.
Coming back to oil-printing: if you have a big negative (like the one
used for cyano) you just need some dichromate , some gelatine , a cheap
foambrayer and some litho-ink. Believe me, you would be astonished
about the proces and the results.
