Lisa Shea's 8x10 cyanotypes

matted to 11x14

A cyanotype is created by mixing 8.1% potassium ferricyanide and 20% ferric ammonium citrate. The substance is sensitive to light. I then paint a surface with that concoction and lay objects on top of the paper. The shadows created by those objects leave a pattern. Each cyanotype is a one-of-a-kind hand crafted work of art.

I create each cyanotype by hand myself. Every cyanotype is unique.

This cyanotype is 8 inches x 10 inches in size. It is matted to an overall size of 11x14. It comes with the mat, backing, and a plastic bag which encloses them all.

Please feel free to ask with any questions! Please Contact Lisa Shea to check on the availability of one of these, if you'd like to buy one. The cost is $19.99 each plus shipping.

Make the World Better
Cyanotypes are amazingly fun works of art which can be made by pretty much any age group. Whether you're six or one-hundred-and-six, there'a cyanotype style for you! It can be incredibly simple, for beginners, or beautifully complex, as you develop skills.







Anna Atkins and Cyanotypes
Anna Atkins is hailed by many as the first woman photographer, primarily due to her work with cyanotypes and photograms. She forged a path in both scientific and artistic fields in a time when most women couldn’t vote or go to college.
