    The Cyanometer is absolutely beautiful in every way, even the packaging. It sits out to be admired with some of my other special vintage art tools.
    I include the color number on my notes when sketching landscapes; photos often miss the right color of the sky. It has been “very” helpful when returning to my art space to complete my drawing or painting. If you paint it is truly a treasure tool to have.

    Beautiful design and very inspiring! A tool to contemplate with and to be contemplated. All tools we use should be like that. Thanks a lot!

    I love my Cyanometer. It's art, it's science - it's an invitation to look more closely at the world around you. Beautifully and authentically crafted, I feel like I'm a time traveler, able to see for a moment through von Humboldt's eyes.

About CyanotypeHandprinted

On Etsy since 2018

A new personal artistic language: sometimes surreal, vivid like the matter, poetic.

I am an artisan working with recicled materials, making prints in cyanotype.
All my works are made by hand, with a careful attention to craft and meaning. I find resonance in the nature that surrounds me and little things happening every day. Those things that inspire me and could inspire you, will become my works.

I live in Lanzarote, Canary Islands (Spain, but off South Moroccan coast). The blue sky and the ocean have been the reason for me to change from my black and white photograpy to the wonderful prussian blue of cyanotype. The link from where I used to live, Liguria and Genova, and where I decided to live now, is the sea; in its changing colours and its depths I find the beauty of life. The sea that I have known in the 60's and '70s there in Liguria, is now here again. The power of hundreds volcanoes and the ocean treasures of Lanzarote always inspire me. I am finding here a new personal artistic language: sometimes surreal, vivid like the matter, poetic.

Cyanotype is a very unique photographic process. I prepare the photographic emulsion following the classic 1842 formula. The emulsion is UV sensitive so the exposure is made with the help of the sun. You need a black and white negative as large as the image you want to print, or objects to create a photogram. When developed, cyanotypes bring to life a wonderful Prussian Blue formed by the iron salts inside the emulsion. Developing a cyanotype is eco-friendly because you need only water, no chemical developer or fixer is used in the process. The Prussian Blue may fade when exposed to sunlight. Leave in a dark space to return to the original colour. A real cyanotype is like a living photograph!

I wish you a very nice day, and that you might find here something nice for youself or to gift to your beloved.

    Interested and courious about everything, my visual calling takes origin from the sea of Liguria and my father's workshop for fabric prints. I like putting attention to details and finding beauty around me, creating items with a touch of poetry.

I live in Canary Islands, that are part of Spain but have a different tax legislation so, buying from this shop means that the object I post you goes through Customs even if you live inside UE.
