Cyanotype (Sun Print)

The cyantoype process is a long one since the chemicals have to be mixed and brushed onto the paper before the art can be created.  When the paper is dry, the art design is placed on the treated paper.  To create the designs featured here, the flowers were pressed/dried first so that they would be completely flat when put in place on the paper.  After the design is created, the artwork is placed in the sun for no more than 5 minutes! The last step is to remove the design and rinse the paper with cold water. The imprint is lasting and quite unique.
