Applying cyanotype emulsion

August 21, 2018

ricsol62 asked: Hi,how do you apply cyanotype emulsion over a gelatin sized paper to make the first pass? Or do you size after the cyanotype layer is on?Incredible job, by the way…

I apply the cyanotype emulsion over the sized Rives BFK using a foam brush.  I haven’t had any trouble coating or having the emulsion wash off.
