Jo de Pear - Bougainvillea IV


A unique Cyanotype by Jo De Pear 

Cyanotype printing : this simple process gives a continuous-tone image of Prussian Blue using a sensitising solution of Ammonium Ferric Citrate and Potassium Ferricyanide. These iron salts, when exposed to natural or artificial ultraviolet light, are reduced to their ferrous state, producing a high contrast blue image when oxidised. Oxidation is hastened by immersion in running water, which also washes away the unused iron salts.

Each print is unique
Created in Antigua using local Flora and Fauna in natural sunlight. 

Size: 46 x 50 cm

Signed by the Artist

Printed on heavy paper with torn edges
