My first attempts at cyanotype printing at home after doing it in class and I’m quite happy with the results… I could get easily carried away with this… I’m likely to make some solution and find some suitable prints….

I decided to develop the prints in the early evening so there was some cloud cover, but it was bright enough to expose. The first picture of the flower I left out for longer so it appeared to be a deeper blue when the solution was washed off.  Also as the picture is square you can see the acetate outline in the print on the t-shirt. The second print is very personal to me – my parents wedding day – so I was very curious as to how it would process. I’m pleased with the result although I will develop the next batch in midday sun to see how they come out.
