This cyanotype was made by first of all coating the paper with light sensitive chemicals. These chemicals are the same as when cyanotypes were first introduced in 1842. I applied the chemicals in near darkness using broad strokes which can be seen in the final print.
After this I left the paper to dry in complete darkness for some hours. The image was then made with UV light after a series of test strips to work out correct exposure time. There will be 10 A4 prints of this image and 10 a3. Each one is unique as the chemicals are never applied in the same way. The paper is a heavyweight watercolour, Bockingford 300 GMS.
