so yay! i finally finally finally got around to doing this cyanotype thing!~ yesterday i mixed up the chemicals and coated some paper and left it to dry.. and then today i was almost too distracted to getting around to giving it a shot while the sun was still up there but i remembered, so yay!~
i took pictures.. that are very glare-y, but these are some digital negatives sitting on my little deck exposing themselves to the sun.
& some super duper quick quick quick.. i guess they are photograms.. leaves & creeping bellflower! i had to clip them to some old pizza box i had found in my house that i was gonna throw, i dont even know where it came from??? it's not mine.. i dont eat pepperoni???
& then here are my prints after i finished rinsing!
a dandelion & my timmy!!! he's so cute!!! cute cute cute!!! aww. turned out so well.. i miss my little guy... sleeping little blue monster.
and these are the photogram thingies.. hanging to dry..
i have a whole bunch more paper.. these are just little pieces. and i also tried some canvas and wood.. and i did have some of the stuff left over so i painted it on a little piece of fabric, but it was 100% polyester and i had read that you need to use natural fiber, or mostly natural fiber, or at least some natural fiber, or.. something like that, but i guess we will just find out now won't we.
and also.. i only mixed less than half the chemical solutions that i made.. and then i have enough chemicals to make that amount at least 4 more times!
makes me think that i should learn how to dye with indigo.. or well.. get some indigo in the first place.. then i could do blue everything!~
(i am trying to grow some false indigo.. i dont know what that does though???)
