"Tangled Up in Blue: Lace Cyanotypes" by Mary Holland

The Southwest School of Art presents Tangled Up in Blue: Lace Cyanotypes by artist Mary Holland. The cyanotype or sun print is an alternative photographic printing process that produces a rich Prussian blue print using a photo sensitive solution of iron salts rather than silver salts. These prints are made on 100% rag watercolor paper or Kozo paper hand coated with cyanotype solution (Potassium Ferrocyanide and Ferric Ammonium Citrate) and allowed to dry in a dark room. The cyanotype is then exposed to the sun or an ultraviolet light using lace, stencils, negatives, objects or drawings on a transparent surface. After exposure, the unexposed solution is washed off the paper and the image if “fixed” with water. Each print is unique.
