Reading Response #6

This section goes over using fabric as the medium for cyanotype and how it is applied. The best way to do this is coat it in the darkroom leave it to hang and then wait for a sunny day and expose it outside in my personal opinion. I noticed that some people in class were having problems with fabric, like turning yellow or weird colors that it shouldn’t have. So with that in mind I stayed away from using fabric, plus I find that I am really rough on my materials, so a sturdier medium was better suited to me personally. However, the different types of mediums that he discusses in the reading inspired me to explore and further my cyanotype experiments. In the future I plan on trying to use wood as a medium for the image. Almost forgot to mention that christopher emphasized on using a large body of water for rinsing these larger fabric prints.
