I use it along with my pt and pd most of the time. I print with a normal
starting point of 1:1 pt/pd with a drop or two of 1 to 5% depending on
color, contrast changes and mix ratio. The 1% with more pt because of how
fast au reacts with pt. If I am really looking to add au, then I might ( and
do) just make a chrysotype.

Yep, I show brush marks.  I am using the same ratio you listed.

  Joe's post listed pd/au 1:1, Joe, what % of au did you use?
