From the Studio: New Cyanotypes are Up!

I’m so excited to start selling some of my cyanotypes in my shop! For now, I’ve put up a few from my series “St. Veronica” and “Birth of Venus,” but I would like to maybe get some landscapes up soon.

I don’t think I’ve ever explained the process on here: cyanotypes are created when ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide are combined and used to coat a surface (in my case Montval Watercolor 140 lb paper). The light-sensitive surface is then covered with a negative and exposed to sunlight. The print is then ran under water to remove the unexposed chemicals, leaving a rich blue color.

I hope you love them and honestly if there are any of my photos that you think would make a good print, let me know!
