Original, zinc leaf cyanotype.
Finished with chemically painted zinc leaf.
Printed on handmade cotton rag paper. 

This artwork was inspired by Mae Carol Jemison, an American engineer, physician and former NASA astronaut. She was the first African American woman to travel into space, she orbited the earth for eight days in 1992 aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

Mae Amongst The Stars was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture, photograms from antique glass slides of interstellar clouds, and hand-printed surface textures from chemigrams. 

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. Once the image is fixed it is hand finished with chemically painted zinc leaf.
