    I messed with this myself but not with blueprint paper, I used water develop photogram paper. About the same results, but without the fumes. I posted the results on my Flickr page. Quite fun, if you have the time. Mine took seven days to expose! Would have been less time except that the lens was only 3.5. BTW, the camera format was 120.

    Low traffic, but at least there IS traffic.
