Wet Cyanotypes

Since I’d been using sumac and elder to make lake pigments, I wanted to use the same plants in my wet cyanotypes. I picked some but was only able to start two days later.  I loved the results – nuances of blues, of yellow ochres and unexpectedly, beautiful tannin marks. It clicked – I shouldn’t have been surprised because sumac is very rich in tannin. I decided to cut more plants and took off with my shears.  This time the results were different. The plants reacted a lot more with the wet surface and left eco prints on the paper.
