These works are made using the cyanotype photographic process, which uses simple chemistry, light and water to produce a Prussian blue image. Autographic line drawings take the place of a photographic negative to create the final image. Each cyanotype is created by hand individually and as a result there may be a slight difference between the screen version and the final print. Please note that the cyanotype is full bleed, there is no border on the paper and the edge of the paper is smooth.
Each cyanotype is signed individually by the artist on the bottom corner in white pencil, and signed on the reverse with the the edition number and title.
The cyanotype will be floated within the frame on a white background (mount board). The print will be hinge mounted, a process which will allow the print to be safely removed from the frame should there ever be a need to do so. Please note that as this is hand framed, that there may be a slight wave in the print within the frame which is a common occurrence when framing original prints.
