Cheshire Art League Floral Cyanotype Zoom Demo

Cheshire Art League Floral Cyanotype Zoom Demo

Yvonne Gordon Moser will demonstrate the process and the materials needed to create floral cyanotypes. Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.

The process involves mixing two chemicals: potassium ferricyanide and ammonium citrate to create a photosensitive solution. This is then applied straight after mixing to an absorbent surface (paper, fabric, bone, leather, shell, etc.) after which it is left in a dark place to dry. Allowing light to reach the paper during the drying process will spoil the print. The paper (or substrate) can then be stored in a lightproof container or bag before use.

Prints can then be made by placing a negative (object or a photographic negative) onto the surface and exposing the coated surface to sunlight or an ultraviolet lamp. Results are usually obtained after about 10-20 mins, though this can vary considerably due to the strength of the sun and the surface being used to create the print. It’s best to create a test piece prior to exposure to ensure you get the results you want.

Yvonne Gordon-Moser is a regionally recognized artist, art therapist and author. Yvonne founded The Branford Art Center and YMG Wellness LLC in 2015. She is currently living with her husband as a nomad in their RV and working electronically with Art and Soul Art Therapy in Madison.
