About

This is a botanical cyanotype print made using natural sunlight. The technique is combined with a Suminagashi marbling that was previously coated on the watercolor paper. It is handmade and unique. Details: + Title: Palm Tree Sunset (with Sumi Marbling) + Edition Size: Unique / Monotype + Stamped and Certificate of Authenticity provided. + The paper measures 50cm x 70cm (about 20 in. x 28 in.), a standard frame size. + All prints are made on high-quality Italian watercolor paper. WHAT IS A CYANOTYPE? The cyanotype (a.k.a. sun-print) process is one of the oldest in the history of photography, dating back to the 1840's. Cyanotypes were then made famous by Anna Atkins, considered the first female photographer. Inspired by nature, we feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade, analogue, and using an all-natural light source: the sun. Our cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality Italian watercolor paper with a light-sensitive emulsion. We then expose it in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. Finally, the print is washed and fixed with water to stop the reaction and prevent fading. What you get is an amazing, royal blue image, with absolutely no ink involved. And since each print is handmade, tones will give gorgeous, subtle variations. The beauty of cyanotypes is that each print is absolutely unique. WHAT IS SUMINAGASHI MARBLING? Suminagashi is a traditional Japanese technique that uses special inks to coat paper in marbled, swirling colors and shapes. Sumi inked is placed with a special Japanese brush upon still water, and subsequently blown and manipulated to create abstract patterns and shapes as the ink floats upon the surface. The ink is then picked up by placing a sheet of paper over the surface, and then washed and fixed.
