Why are cyanotypes blue?
The cyanyotype process uses iron in the emulsion, in comparison to black & white printing, which uses salt. A light-sensitive solution (potassium ferricyanide & ferric ammonium citrate) is applied to the paper. When the paper is then exposed to UV light the iron in the solution is reduced, resulting in a blue dye (ferric ferrocyanide), also known as Prussian blue.
What type of paper do you use?
I mainly use Epson Archival Matte Paper that has a weight of 192g. I am currently experimenting with some water color papers and hopefully will have some new prints available soon.
Are your prints signed?
All prints are signed and numbered on the back.
How long before my order is shipped?
Orders are shipped within 2 days of being received.
What does shipping cost and how long will it take?
It will depend on where you're located, but anywhere from 3 to 10 days and 17-50 euros.
How are prints packaged?
The photographs are packed within multiple oversize layers of cardboard, with corners reinforced. All necessary precautions are taken to protect your print from harm (or damage) during shipping.
