    I did it - cyanotype on wood

    I finally succeded in making a cyanotype on wood. Only two differences from the failed attempts. More gelatine in the gelatine sizing and new cyanotype chems.

    One interesting aspect is that the picture developes through a couple of days. Now it is very clear and nice. The blue is striking. This test was done on a piece of wood that had done nothing to. This weekend I will try on the polished wood.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some pictures either. Seems like an interesting process.

    Good for you! I'm interested in your process also.

    As a bizarre aside, I once did a cyanotype on a concrete sidewalk. It worked well but didn't last.

    Has anybody tried a cyanotype directly on an interior wall? That is something I've had in mind.

    I too eagerly await shots of the print on wood!

    Pictures

    Here are two pictures. One shows a closeup and the other shows the same picture printed on wood and two different types of paper. I dont have a scanner. The cynotype on wood looks much better in real life. I am sure that it would be even better on a polished piece of wood.

    In this test I coated the wood with a gelatine/water solution (10g gelatine from the supermarket in 1 liter of water). After letting it dry, I coated with the cyanotype, let that dry in a dark place. Placed the neg on the wood and covered with a plexiglass plate, exposed in the sun. Washed in running water. Let it stand in the sun and rain for about two weeks and now it looks like on the picture.

    The picture shows my favorite coffee (beans) - Finca Vista Hermosa

    That's an creative image! I really like the softness of the image on wood.
