why are my sensitized cyanotype papers doing this?

Darkroom: Film, Processing & Printing - www.largeformatphotography.info
paper is 300 Series Bristol Smooth paper, and chemistry is the premixed Formulary liquid cyanotype kit. After sensitizing with a foam brush, and drying in the dark, they look like this in the morning. they still print, but doesn't seem like a good starting point. any thoughts on why this is happening?

after developing a paper that looked like that to start. I get something like this. It's weird because the edges outside of the negative is solid deep blue. but where the image was it's very speckled looked, as if some of the emulsion lifted in specs during the washing/developing process. don't know if that's just an artifact of this paper, or if it has anything to due with the above defect.

thanks!
