Hi Cor,

That comment was omitting the negatives; only then it makes sense... How
about a comparison with the same step tablet?

OTOH, there's still room for correction in that assertion; maybe I should
have said: "cyanotype is the slowest *iron* process". (Still, I don't know
any other - relatively well known - alt. process which the emulsion speed is
slower than trad. cyanotype...)

Well I am not sure about that Loris, when I print pure platinum with Pyro
negatives I lately ran into 60-90 minutes exposure on my UV bank (these
negatives are too dense for Cyanotype).

Cyanotypes with the proper negatives ran into 5-20 minutes exposure on the
same unit.
