Cyanotype on Hahnemuhle Platinum Rag 300gsm.

The print is 27.7 cm x 37.8 cm. It is not mounted or framed. Please note that this listing is for the original artwork. 

It was made by arranging layers of prunus leaves between sheets of glass on top of paper coated with a photosensitive emulsion. This was then exposed to sunlight before being washed to reveal the final image.

Cyanotypes are archival, meaning they will last for a really long time, but best displayed out of direct sunlight. If they do begin to fade over the years, you can place them in the dark for a week or two and, like magic, they will regain their full colour. In a way they are a living memory of what the sun saw in a given moment in time!
