Cyanotype Photogram

by cholmesart

A cyanotype is a photographic process that creates a cyan-blue print. There are two chemicals used in this process, ammonium iron citrate and potassium ferricyanide. These chemicals can be applied to cotton, wool, and watercolor paper.

A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects onto the surface of  photosensitive material and exposing it to light.

So here is one of my examples of a cyanotype photogram. I enjoy this process and plan to create more.
