I love doing themed projects with my cyanotypes. In this case, I began with four ten-inch by ten-inch canvas squares. I gently painted each one with the cyanotype liquid. I kept the brushstrokes rough. Then I used large gears to decorate the canvas. I rinsed it in a way to create a distressed look. I love the overall soft, well used effect that this created. It brings a calm, quiet aspect to the cyanotype.
This is canvas square 1 of 4 of that project. I’ll link below to the others so you can see how each is different. This is the unique original cyanotype I created from that gear.
If you live near the Blackstone Valley Art association (BVAA) Gallery in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, contact me. I’ll arrange so you can stop by to see this cyanotype in person:
Please feel free to ask with any comments or questions. The back of this square is wired for hanging.
Cost: $40 plus shipping. If you buy two or more, the cost is $30 each.
