Cor and all,
Sorry, I've given you inaccurate information here. Prussian blue is
actually a transparent pigment; I was mistaken. Since I'd never printed
it over other colors, having other favored blues for that purpose, I
hadn't been greatly concerned about its relative transparency, as long
as it wasn't opaque or semi-opaque. I apologize for the mistatement.
