Sandy, yes, I have found that if a vandyke print is flattened in a drymount
press with the image in direct contact with the hot metal, or if it is
ironed directly (without steam), the color change that you noted occurs. I
thought that it had to do with contact with metal but maybe humidity within
the paper is brought to the surface of the image and causes the image shift.
