Frame color for cyanotype
Hi Carole, I was sort of waiting for someone who prints cyanotype to jump in here, since I don't. But I do often print monochrome gum prints in Prussian blue, which is essentially the same compound that makes up a cyanotype; these prints are often mistaken for cyanotypes, and I find the pewter-colored frames as compatible with that color as with other colors of gum. But I'm a little confused; I'm probably not the one who recommended the particular frame you list, since I've always used American Frame's aluminum frame which while it is definitely a pewter-ish color, is listed as "German silver." So I don't know if the pewter-colored frame you mention is the same color as the frames I use.
Not sure that's helpful, but it's the best I can do. I'll take my name off the subject line and maybe someone who has a favorite frame color for cyanotype will chime in and offer a helpful suggestion. Good luck,
