I went by trial and error, because each was different. Plus, each exposure lamp will be different. Personally I think mine were ranging between 5-10 minutes in the light.

I should look for a page with a more in-depth tutorial than my break down of it. Something more articulate and clear than how I wrote it. I'll get back to you guys on this...

Well, the best place I could find on it (other than my college notes) was actually wikipedia!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calotype

This has the directions and measurements if you're attempting.

Disclaimer! Make sure to use goggles and gloves for safety, and an apron if you don't want to stain your clothes. Smiley

These are cool! I was told by my father the other day about how they had to make building plan copies using these kinds of development techniques. The cyanotype kind is how blue prints got their name. And they had to use the template canvas again and again.
Fascinating stuff! Seems I had no idea how complicated this used to be- now its just click and print Smiley
Thanks for explanations- very enlightening! and pretty to boot!

That's neat! I didn't know they used it for that!

And yes, it does take a bit of effort, but it's so worth it in the end. It gives you such a sense of personal value to your print, unlike digital sometimes where you can run a million in seconds.

Thanks for the kind words! Smiley
