Night Descends with Cyanotype by mouse2cat Night Descends with Cyanotype by mouse2cat
I did a series of cyanotypes of the mountains and used them as a way to play with mood and setting in relation to the linoleum block. The cyanotypes were a lot of fun but ended up being very unpredictable. I had to develop them in my bathtub because these prints are so freaking huge. My bathtub wasn't actually big enough for the paper so I just had to shove it in there a little in order to develop them after exposure.

24 X 36 is huge! Did you cut the plate out of a single piece of mat? The cyanotype makes it really look like a photo. Every time I see this, I'm like, is that a print? Why is it in the Printing folder? ... oh wait, that's right, it's that awesome cyanotype. :clap:

For the black and white linocut I got a huge piece of linoleum from Dick Blick. (not as expensive as you'd think) and for the cyanotype layer I had to got to a architectural blueprint shop to get my negatives printed out large enough.

I have had someone tell me that they did not believe that it was a print, I had to send them a photograph of the carved lino block to prove it. lol.

Thanks for your sweet comment :)
