Cyanotypes are a 170 year old photographic printing process that produces prints in a distinctive dark green-blue; they're where the term blueprints come from. It involves painting a solution of iron compounds on painting or fabric, placing something over it like a photo negative or plant and then exposing it to UV light to develop. Below is a selection of things made with various flora, photo negatives and linocuts using the cyanotype process, including a pair of overalls printed with plants and flowers that are all meaningful to me- ferns from my favorite rainforest beach, palm leaves for my mother's name Palma, flowers from my wedding, a 4 leaf clover a friend picked for me during an illness.
