This print was created using Alliums that I grew in my garden, then pressed and printed. This is a process that creates unique camera-less photographs using an old chemical technique called cyanotype. An ideal gift for gardeners, plant lovers and art enthusiasts.

Cyanotype prints are real photographs of flowers, using the sun or UV light, to process paper painted with cyanotype chemical. The print turns a gorgeous Prussian blue, and when washed, leaves behind an x-ray image of the flower. Each one of these prints are made to order, so they will differ slightly, but that's the beauty of it - it is a one of handmade product! It's science meets art while painting with sunlight!

Each fine grain - heavyweight paper (200g/m^2) is hand cut, hand painted and made fresh to order. I leave a small white border and try to show a little of the brush strokes for extra interest. The prints can be framed or given as a gift. I also sell cyanotype print kits if you would like to make the prints yourself.

It's a beautiful way to capture the seasons and the beloved plants in your garden and can be shared with children as a fun activity or done alone as a curious and creative adult who likes to experiment. Either would make an excellent gift for a gardener.
