Time flew by and my daily posts, well…were not so daily. Here are a couple from today, still wet after being “in the drink” as my friend likes to say.
This image was just completed today and was still drying. The exposure for cyanotype in bright sun was 3 minutes, rest 5 minutes face down in cool grass, 4 minutes, rest 2 minutes. Developed in water, rinsing for around 10 minutes. Added a splash of hydrogen peroxide to water, then add print to deepen the blue (only for about 30 seconds). Rinse another 10 minutes. The paper was Fabriano Unica Paper, white.
This image was partially exposed in fluorescent light (by happy accident). The final exposure was 3 minutes in full sun, rest for 5 minutes, 5 more minutes in full sun. This was also from the June 6th workday.
This image was made with the cyanotype photographic process. The handwriting was written first with a white Prismacolor pencil. The cyanotype chemicals were added next. Exposure was a bit dark in this print. I would try less time next time.
