Black is beautiful !

Finally, after one year of "try and error" with cyanotypes, toned with tannic acid, gallic acid, tea, or coffee....or blahblahblah.......I´ve got first really "black" Cyanotype on my new favorite paper "Lukas OSAKA". Normally the toning process results in a lot of weired color cast like greenish-violet-brown-blue-black colors, but yeah....on this new paper I´ve got a beautiful clean warm-black tone. In this case I toned the wet unbleached cyano with tannic acid immediately after the washing process. And it works..many thanks to the "Schoellerhammer" company for this beautiful watercolor paper!
