Saturday September 24, 2016 was World Cyanotype Day, a day dedicated to the making and sharing of cyanotypes.  I was unable to make a new cyanotype this year so I’ve decided to share one. This self portrait was made with a large copy camera negative on BFK printmaking paper. For fun, I sprayed the cyanotype on top of a vandyke brown print allowing the chemicals to react with each other.
