Japanese Lantern Autumn Leaf Cyanotype

Japanese Lantern Autumn Leaf Cyanotype

I love making cyanotypes out of autumn leaves. This cyanotype seemed to me to look like a Japanese lantern. I have a Japanese lantern like this in my back yard, so I was really pleased with the composition.

To create this cyanotype, I brushed the cyanotype liquid on loose, to leave white showing. I used an artisanal corrugated art paper for the creation. That created the ridges you can see in the image.


If you live near the Blackstone Valley Art association (BVAA) Gallery in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, you can stop by to see similar cyanotypes in person:


This photo of my cyanotype was taken by me, and is copyright Lisa Shea.
