Artist's description:

Cyanotype is an early photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print (it's were the term 'blueprint' comes from).

The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide, applied (in my case painted) onto paper, dried (in the dark) and then exposed to sunlight with the object placed directly to the coated paper.

In this case 3 grass heads were placed onto Khadi 100% cotton rag handmade acid free paper and exposed to the sun, washed and dried.

It is framed by me using the highest conservation standards with a white moulding, 20mm wide and 35mm deep. Float mounted on acid free foam core board and raised away from the board to provide shadow detail.

Materials used:

Khadi 100% cotton rag handmade paper
