A handmade cyanotype featuring 7 Specialist Needles. This print is created by hand using a photographic printing process which uses UV light (such as sunlight) to expose the image. The bright cyan colours are created through the chemical process discovered in 1842. This process was used well into the 1900’s to reproduce architectural drawings, natural phenomena, and drawings.
- Size: A4 Unframed
- Each print is individually handmade & signed
- Printed on 300gsm cold pressed watercolour paper
- Each print in an edition is individually created under the same conditions as much as possible, but the process lends itself to slight differences in the final result. These are handmade items so you will receive original artwork.
The unframed print comes backed with board and protected with compostable plastic for shipping. All my products are wrapped and shipped in compostable and recyclable packaging, with plastic avoided where possible.
These 7 specialist needles are used for specific repairs; mattress, pillows, bookbinders, sailmaking, tents, deck chairs etc. These tools are sculptural, useful, and evergreen. They haven’t changed because there is no better design.
