RE: ***S**** Re: SAME BRUSH; PT/PD & CYANO?
Thanks for the insightful replies. I LOVE this list!
Economically, the one that makes most sense to me is whomever
suggested that Cyano chem was so inexpensive that I can use a large hake
brush and keep it for cyano.
I will reserve my Richeson Magic Bus...ooops...Brush for PT/PD chem.

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. ;)
