April Cyanotypes

Name, png

The weather over the weekend was glorious, so instead of visiting the Open Studios I decided to create some new Cyanotypes. This time I used Grape Hyacinths (Muscari), I will pop a picture of the finish images later on this week.

New 2022 Cyanotypes II

Name, png

It was such a lovely sunny day that I created by first Cyanotype of 2022. Using ivy, ferns and dried seed heads I created one fern image (which is drying at the moment) and a few (experimental) circular ones as well. Using my camera I created a time lapse video of the process.

The whole process from start to finish takes about 12 – 24 hours which includes drying. The time lapse is just 40 minutes condensed into 40 seconds. Let me know what you think. Notice how it changes from yellow to dark blue as the sun slowly develops the image.


I will add the final Cyanotypes in a few days time when they have dried.

A big thank you to all who have purchased andy cards or prints from me – Thank you once again!

Well December didn’t turn out bad as far as selling cards & gifts. Out of stock of all my cyanotype Christmas Cards & Chris the Christmas Cat! Next year I’ll have to get busy making some more of the Cyanotype ones.

I also sold three of my pictures at the last minute, so I’ll have to re-stock those too, especially as Valentines Day & Mother’s Day will be soon on the horizon!

Late to the Party (again…)

World Cyanotype Day 25th September

Name, png

It seems as though I missed World Cyanotype Day which takes place on the last Saturday in September. I didn’t even know it was a thing but then again it seems every day is World whatever day. Apparently it started in 2015 by a lady called Judy Sherrod we created “shootapalooza.” I’m not going to go into detail here but of you are interested there is a link further down.
