@modgethanc hey! what is this and how does it works?

@warpaint cyanotype is a uv-sensitive printing media; coat a sheet of paper with it, then expose it to the sun. anything that's blocked remains white, and anything exposed turns blue.

this print failed because i didn't get the exposure calibrated right, but here are some successful ones i've done in the past:

working from drawings is a bit trickier to figure out exposure; the ones in that link were made with solid opaque objects, which block light a lot better!
