This project was an experimental use of Cyanotype, Argyrotype, and Platinum development processes. I used several different methods of applying the mediums to the paper surfaces to create unique patterns. I used a 4x5 camera to take the pictures, and developed the negatives myself as well.
Control Image, no special process used.
Cyanotype, spreading a thin layer of the chemicals on the paper, overlapping more layers from different directions.
Argyrotype, spreading the chemicals across the paper in a zig-zag fashion.
Platinum, spreading an inconstant amount of chemicals across the page one direction, and then spreading it in a perpendicular direction.
Spreading a small amount of the chemicals from halfway across the paper, then adding just a couple more drops of chemicals to the start position and spreading them in the opposite direction.
Spreading chemicals in four directions from center.
Spreading appropriate amount of chemicals across small area and blowing excess with a straw.
