Sitting at home, no darkroom, no silver nitrate what to do?

Take a walk, look around, pick a leaf and grow your print.

It really is as simple.

Print out a positive image onto a transparency. Press it firmly onto a leaf (contact printing types) and leave it in the sun. In this case it was a banana leaf left in the sun for 2 days. Because I used cheap refilled inkjet print cartridge, the ink stained the leaf… but not to worry it wiped of easily.

This is what the “cleaned print” looks like

And its reverse side
