I haven't yet read all the other answers to your question, but I do a
lot of cyanotype over pt/pd, and I can tell you-- from experience--
that you should absolutely use two separate brushes. I clean my
brushes thoroughly, but I was never able to clean the cyanotype
sufficiently enough to not cause a problem when coating pt/pd with
that same brush. In fact, I really don't use that pt/pd brush for
anything-- but pt/pd.
You're better off just biting the bullet, and shelling out the extra
money for yet another magic brush. ;)

I use a 4" Magic Brush for coating large PT/PD prints. As they are
rather expensive, might I use the same brush for coating large
Can the brush be sufficiently cleaned when switching back and forth
processes? Or will one process contaminate the other?
