Cyanotype Transparency

Russian prison tattoo (hands)

not sure what happened here, but this was my first test print at making a Cyanotype print with a negative rather than objects.

I have tried to read up to why yellow/white patches appeared during exposure, although i like the aged/dappled affect, it somewhat distracts away from the actual image.

the exposure time was for about 10 mins, at 2 oclock, in what i would concider bright sunshine. The image is very faint and again i will have to experiment more to find out why. It may be the image wasnt a high enough reselution, or what i think it might be, not a long enough exposure/needed even brighter sunshine.

im going to try again, at 12, when the sun is directly above, failing that trying in Zoom-in’s darkroom.
