Inspiration
This artwork is a celebration of friendship, the solidarity of sisterhood and the joys of womankind.

Technique
Lunar Etiquette Under The Harvest Moon (No10) was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture and the surface textures from Lunar photographs.

After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the paper by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours.

Dimensions
Unframed:  203mm x 254mm / 10" x 8"
Framed:      

Paper
Fabriano Artistico traditional watercolour paper: 
300gsm / 100% Cotton Rag / Mould Made / Cold Pressed / PH Neutral / Medium Rough

Mount
We use float mounting for all of our framed cyanotypes. The artwork floats above a snow-white mount board, showcasing the paper texture and deckled edging.

Framing
Framed artwork will arrive ready to hang.

Each frame is handmade by our London based design team. They prime and sand the wooden frame before spraying black or white soft-sheen paint to achieve the highest quality finish. All frames come with gallery spec, 3mm thick anti-reflective/ UV glazing as standard. 

If you would like a bespoke frame, please get in touch to discuss alternative colours, gilding and glazing options.
