This cyanotype was created from a beautiful wildflower in central Massachusetts – the boneset. The wisps of blossoms and swaying leaves create an almost abstract design of light and movement.
This cyanotype is 8 inches x 10 inches in size. It is matted to an overall size of 11×14. It comes with the mat, backing, and a plastic bag which encloses them all.
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.
