Cyanotype

I have just signed up for a cyanotype (blueprinting) exchange on one of the groups I am a member of. This is one of my experimental pieces which is a little larger than the required fabric postcard size. One of the advantages of using your own chemicals is you can use different colours of fabric which give wonderful results. I will post more pictures of the different colours later.

That is really nice! I have been using Dye-Na-Flo for sun printing but it's not a crisp as that. Do the chemicals have an odor?

Ruth said...

Wonderful shade of blue and the design is so defined. Great job!

This is really lovely Carol. I'm curious did you treat the fabric yourself...or did it come ready treated? I haven't yet bought any of the pretreated fabric but I'm quite tempted.
