Andre, a suggestion: Test your cyanotype emulsion with and without the
dichromate added. I know that in the amounts suggested as *contrast
control* the dichromate definitely degrades the print -- loss of highlight
delicacy, in fact loss of highlights, plus it slows the exposure. It's
probable/possible that the tiny amount used for fungicide wouldn't do
that, but.... as the chem prof told me when I protested the effect of one
drop: "There are millions of ions in everything."
