A cute little A6 print, with your favourite letter or number ... these arorable little postcard size prints are made to order using the cyanotype process. This basically means that I'll take a piece of card which I've treated with a light-sensitive photographic solution, and arrange a mix of flower petals, pollen and other bits of nature in the shape of your chosen number/letter on top of it. When this is exposed to the sunlight (or a UV bulb when it's not so sunny), the flowery bits block the chemical reaction of the sun hitting the paper - when washes, where the sun hit becomes blue and the shadows are preserved as the paper colour... pretty cool.

 

So, choose sunshine and flowers for your wall, desk or journal decor!

  • Cyanotype is a photographic technique dating back to the 1800s - it is a method of capturing shadows on a light-sensitive page: when sunlight/UV light is introduced, areas of shadow remain the white of the page, and areas touched by the light undergo a chemical reaction, transforming into beautiful shades of blue once washed.

    Much like how flowers of the same variety grow in their own unique ways, cyanotypes are all unique, even when created in the same way, with the same tools - that's the magic of the cameraless photography process, it's always a bit of a surprise outcome, and that's why I love it!

  • It is normal for these artworks to incur some small dents along the way due to the washing/processing techniques; these may have been cut off, so your print will be slightly smaller than A4/A3, or they may have been left in situ as part of the character and history of the piece. Every effort is made to ensure the best outcome for each artwork.
