    I am interested in making Cyanotypes prints. I have the chemicals, paper and a UV light. I don’t have very good facilities to produce enlarged digital negatives. I can easily produce enlarged B&W prints, and then make paper negatives by the contact printing method. I even have some 5x7” single weight paper which is less opaque than standard paper. Some of this paper has age-related fog which may remove the need for pre-flashing. Has anyone tried using paper negatives in this way? Did it work?
