cyanotypes






i've started working on some cyanotype photograms. theyre alot of fun to do.
the images are made by painting a light sensitive emulsion of potassium ferricyanide and ferric ammonium citrate onto a watercolor paper, and exposing it to uv light with the object directly on top of the paper.
if any of you out there have objects (coral, dried plants, seashells...things like that) that you'd be willing to let me use for some cyanotypes, you would make me very happy. leave a comment or shoot me an email!

I really like your cyanotypes. I love the approach you are using of laying objects on top of the paper. The objects you are choosing to use are really working. I love the seahorse and the wheat ones. Awesome!
