I have a guest room in Florida that needs something on the wall over the headboard and I thought the accent colors in the room would work beautifully with wet cyanotype; hence, my "vision." The challenge with wet cyanotype is it's unbelievably inconsistent and you basically never know what your going to get.
Well, I love a challenge and today was the day to test my vision! I planned to create 3 prints that would play off each other and, as it turned out, 4 prints worked well together.
I wanted tropical natural plants for my prints but because I'm back in New York, I ended up buying really cool tropical dried florals at Hobby Lobby (with no idea if they would work!). The other component I needed for the wet cyanotype process is ground Turmeric. The water color papers were previously prepared ahead of time.
For the final result, the watercolor paper has to be rinsed under water to remove the photo solution and then allowed to dry. The brown tones are the diluted turmeric!
Thanks for stopping by!
