This is a seconds because it is paler than my usual Cyanotype designs and the background is slightly mottled.


A large blue cylinder vase with a magical Cyanotype design of butterflies fluttering over meadow grasses and seed heads on a starry night. Created using the Cyanotype technique on a textured fine paper then applied to glass.

The old photographic process of Cyanotype was invented by Sir John Herschel in 1841. A light sensitive solution is applied to paper, objects or negatives layered on then exposed to sunlight, the solution is then rinsed off in water and the paper dried, fixing the image in glorious blue tones.

Please note the outside of the vase is paper so preferably just display dried seed heads, dried flowers or fairy lights inside. Battery powered fairy lights work well. I use rechargeable batteries. The inside is glass so water can be used for fresh flowers if very careful when rinsing out not to splash the outside.
