Handprinted on Fabriano Artistico Watercolour paper.
Gilded Peacock Butterfly was created by placing a peacock butterfly into a photographic enlarger and making a hand printed paper negative. Once photographed, it is made into a digital negative and contact printed onto paper that had been hand-brushed with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop it's cyan blue colour, dried and then hand finished with 24ct gold.
