Hi Loris,

I've never printed unpigmented gum dichromate layers over cyanotype, but it
sure sounds like a good idea to achieve that effect. It's only a wild guess
on my part, but two or more coatings of gum should produce interesting

Best regards from Wyoming,

Maybe one can coat unpigmented gum-dichromate mixture over cyanotype,
fog it and then clear the dichromate stain (if present) in sulfuric acid
(or sodium sulfite; but I don't know the PH of the latter, if it's
alkali then it will bleach the underlying cyanotype)... What do you
think? How many coats it will take to get adequate sheen which will open
the shadows a little bit and increase dmax?

Try printing a cyanotype/gum combination. Multiple printings with gum
will create a luster or sheen, particularly in the shadow areas.

Look at my cyanotype/gum prints for examples:
