Three Feathers Cyanotype


A unique, one of a kind cyanotype print of Silver Pheasant, Guinea Fowl and Blue Jay beautiful bird feathers. Created on lovely, high quality watercolour paper. This is not a giclee print, it is an original, one-of-a-kind cyanotype.

It is mounted ready to fit a standard 12 x 9 ins. frame. Frame not included.

All feathers used in my cyanotypes are ethically sourced.

In creating a cyanotype the final result is determined by many factors such as the time of day, when the position and power of the sun varies, the temperature and humidity, the mix of chemicals, the type of paper used and the length of development. No two are ever the same. That’s what makes it exciting for me even after years of creating them!

The Cyanotype process was developed by Sir John Herschel in the 1840’s and shortly after used by the pioneering female early photographer Anna Atkins. A method of photography using sunlight without the use of a camera.
