This records the experiments I am making with cyanotypes. Inspired by Meghan Riepenhoff’s work Litoral, I plan to try out different exposures of cyanotypes using seaweed found on the South Devon coastline.
I was very pleased with this as it has traces of beige colouring which is caused by the presence of sea salt in the chemical mix.
I used wallpaper lining paper for this experiment of seaweed exposed to UV under glass, and the added texture of the fold in the paper is something to keep in mind for future use:
This image below is of the same seaweed but exposed to UV not under glass. I particularly like the 3D effect created by the tonal values of the print:
