I’ve been experimenting now with the Wet Cyanotype process for a couple of years. My main reason for using this technique was my interest using older traditional ways of capturing light on a photosensitive medium and then seeing how I could utilise these images into my digital processing.
What I discovered was it becomes very addictive and you can never really predict what you might get.
Different papers and surfaces will also give very different results and often it is a case of experimenting and see what you get.
Using additional elements on the wet surface like, turmeric, coffee, soap bubbles etc creates reactions with the chemical; that often what makes the wet process appealing to artists for the effects you can achieve.
I will photograph or scan the images throughout the process so I have copies in the digital medium and I can then re-purpose them into other artwork or composite images.
