Repost from @mirandawildman using @RepostRegramApp - F U L L M O O N ::: Wow, I am feeling this one. I want to make all of the art! I have three spaces left in my #mixedmediacyanotype workshop this Friday. You don’t have to call yourself an artist to attend! All you need is a desire to let go and let your creative juices flow. Let the layers of art making tell your story with me as your guide and @studio141asheville as your safe and atmospheric space to unwind. Link in Profile!
The first batch!!! Custom-made cyanotype postcards
第一批《度身訂造藍曬明信片》 由於有60多人留言，我需要多一點時間去創作。 今日我在吉隆坡機場成功寄出五張出去！
到達香港後，我會繼續 因應 你給我的提示去創作！
At the end over 60 people requested for the postcards in FB & Instagram, more than I have expected! After last min packing, today I have successfully delivered 5 pieces of custom-made postcards in Kuala Lumpur Airport.
I will continue making unique cyanotype postcards according to what you guys have commented in HK. Wait for me!!
🍀 P. S I had nandos chicken as my last meal in Malaysia, this picture was taken in Nandos. Yumyum

‘Charon on the Kennet’
So .. Charon is the ferryman of Greek mythology who rowed the dead over the River Styx to Hades (not hell- just the land of the dead). I think he had/has to be paid -so make sure you always have some drachmas on you.
Thanks to all who called in today - we have had a lovely day chatting and sitting in the sun outside the Bel..closing on Sunday pm
I've had a fun day of experimenting with hot-press watercolour and cartridge paper, exposure times and soaking capacity. My bath has never witnessed so much arting! 'Janus' - the top pic - needs some more fiddling but it'll eventually end up in next year's exhibition at Busk, York.
藍曬照片並不是第一次就成功， 負片調的光暗度要準確， 曬出來的藍曬作品才會有清晰的畫面， 而且 通常 人像面孔比風景更難控制， 因為五官輪廓對比度 沒有風景那麼特出。
我自己沒有跟老師 學過攝影或藍曬， 所以以上的分享都是從自己經驗所得到， 我是100%的門外漢， 其實我是讀布料設計出生。
It is never easy to create cyanotype picture with negative, but #practicemakesperfect Making your own negative takes time to practice. Find out what's the best contrast and highlights according to the photo. I made several different negatives ( with the same image) in order to find the prefect match.
Usually scenery is easier than portray, as it is easier to adjust the contrast of scenery then human faces. Also don't over do it, as it will lose the details of the image.
I am a self-taught cyanotype artist, this is all from past experience and I am still learner more each day.
