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.
