We learnt the process of making cyanotypes, I started by selecting the best of my pictures of light in order to make them into blueprints.

I then picked my favorites and edited the images on photo shop ready for printing onto acetate.

How to make cyanotypes:

  1. in dark room prep paper with light sensitive liquid
  2. let dry
  3. place acetate/ paper/ objects under paper in light box
  4.  expose for 2 mins
  5. rinse paper
  6. let dry

final outcomes:

As well as images and inspired by  Anna Atkins, I gathered some leaves and twigs to see what out come that would have. heres my result:
