I would love to come over but I'm near Atlanta, so that is a bit far for me
to bike over! But thanks for the invite.

I'll say it looks OK. I would imagine that the actual print is very nice. Do
you process your ortho in Dektol? What brand of film?

So are you doing New Cyanotypes or traditional? I've used a foam brush but
for the prints that I've done lately I've used a wet hake brush.
I seem to have some crystalization of the emulsion as well. I'm sure I'm
making this too difficult.
