Re: First layer...

Hi Loris,

That's a really nice first layer. Your coating is really smooth and the image is quite surreal. I can't wait to see the finished product

This is one-coat (will do further coats later) Schmincke Ivory Black.
Print size is 25 x 16cm or 9 13/16 x 6 5/16".

I'm very impressed. I got incredible shadow detail with my 2A+1B Trad.
Cyanotype curve designed for Masa Paper. Shadow detail is even better
than the Cyanotype version. Image is softer than Cyanotype but the
detail is still there...
