Cyanotype Leaves

Although I've mostly stayed away from plant material for my cyanotypes, I've been really inspired by other artists also utilizing the #wetcyan technique with plant material. Check out these artists on Instagram: 



If I've forgotten anyone I shouldn't, let me know! Go to Instagram and search the hashtag #wetcyan and you'll find a wealth of them! I love the way the maple leaves have printed, with that blue "halo". I'm sure it's a chemical reaction that I have no idea about, or basic with acid or....I was terrible at science, but the ones done with actual plant matter really come out differently. I like the surprise, though!  

Let me know how your #wetcyan experiments are coming along and if you have any favorites!
