Cyanotype on a Canvas Bag

I made this tote a few months ago during a Cyanotype work shop in the Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi.

What’s Cyanotype? It is a photo graphic printing process in which you apply a liquid (see green colored areas below) to a canvas (paper or cotton for instance), then expose this canvas to sunlight and after a certain time you will take the piece back inside and wash the canvas first in bleach, then in water. It turns blue as soon as it hits the bleach.
