Why does Cyanotype sound scary? The most dangerous part that I have been
able to find is some of the toners used, Lead Acetate for example. It moves
through Latex gloves and then into the skin. THEN one gets lead poisoning.
Just do not tone with it ...Heck do not tone at all!
Ask Judy for a copy of the PF that has a LOT of Cyanotype material.

thanks for that ken,
have had a little dig around looking at cyanotype stuff and it does seem
like it could be the right thing.
my only question is regarding the health and safety issues with the
chemistry (no mention in the selection i've looked at). Not being very
alt-processy (right now) I dont know how much respect the chemicals for the
formula require, and cyanotype does sound a little scary.
