Seeking Creation

Letting yourself go and letting the techniques play the role of extending creativity into different styles is conclusively the reason to master the craft and then explore your ideas more. Superimposing a Van Dyke Brown over a Cyanotype image print brought about an interesting combination.

After going through the process which consists of the chemical combinations for the paper emulsion which is highly sensitive to UV light exposure, finding the correct exposure times, correcting the curves and tones of the negatives depending upon what process it is being used for and the type of paper quality, acidifying the paper etc., Uzma and Tashi were now combining their alternative photo printing processes and furthering the explore and the learning.

This being the first such experiment did not render a perfectly exposed image but we could see a fair amount of what was going on.

The paper was first coated with the chemicals used for the Cyanotype Process and left to expose under a UV light source for about 20 mins. Once it had been washed and dried the paper was coated with the chemicals used for the Van Dyke Brown Process and again exposed to a UV light source for about 20 mins.
