Cyanotype Print

... (Or otherwise known as a blueprint)
Hey there everyone! Just some quick updates. this is my cyanotype print I had to do for my history and design class. this was one of the first processes developed in the 1840's, and it has been in use up until the few years as the "blueprint".
along with being fairly old, and the most simple process, it's also one of the safest. (as long as you don't accidentally heat up the Potassium Ferricyanide over 300^F, or drop it in some form of strong acid, you are fine. it is used at room temperature and mixed with Ammonium Citrate. simple!)
this is the print I made from the digital negative mentioned earlier.
