Can anyone suggest what color and brand watercolors to start off with for spotting palladium and cyanotype prints?

Thanks, Clay, I figured I would post here as I've been filling up your inbox lately :smile:

I went ahead and ordered a burnt umber and an ivory black with my magic brush (and a hake for the cyanotypes). I'll wait until I print some cyanotypes, see the results, and bring them with me to the art store.

Bezerkeley,
Hope this isn't a silly question...but should I use Gum Arabic when spotting PT/PD? Or is it just the pigment(s)?
Happy Days
