Getting back into Cyanotypes

I have made Cyanotypes for years, but for some reason I have never tried wet cyanotype. So as the sun is now out (for the time being at least), now seemed as good a time as any. I am totally in love with the process! It is so forgiving; exposure time isn't really a concern and almost anything goes!


I have been using leaves, seaweed, feathers and flowers to create the 'negative' part of the print, and apply to a freshly-coated cyanotype sheet of watercolour paper. Once happy with the composition, I then added numerous other things to create interest and texture, such as soap suds, turmeric, paprika and watered down white vinegar. I am loving the results.
