One of a kind
Please look carefully at the photos and read the description below!
NOTE: I shot the listing photos on my iPhone, which sharpens the images. The actual print is slighly softer.
To test exposure for larger cyanotype prints, I use 8 1/2 x 11" relief print paper. The exposures are tweaked from these tests, but the test prints themselves are great for experimenting with hand coloring, adding emulsion lifts, or- if the exposure is really close to right, simply a nice little print.
And that's what this is- just a straight print, no fussing, just toning. The color that this turned out is one I love, almost a split tone from the slight bleaching I did before soaking it in coffee.
I forgot to mention on my other listings (and too lazy to change it)- the image was originally made on Polaroid black and white film. I made an enlarged, digital negative to create the cyanotype, leaving the border around it like the original Polaroid border.
This print is exactly what you see- no mat, just a print. Process info and my signature are on the back in pencil.

If this has not sold, and you're interested in purchasing it to ship internationally, please contact me. Unfortunately, the cost of shipping could be almost as much as the print so please consider that annoying truth. Sorry!
