Beach Rose (Rosa rugosa) anthotype by Kendall Reiss and Jesseca FergusonBeach Rose (Rosa rugosa) for making anthotypesAmount: Two handfuls of petals
Extracted using: Mortar
Thinner: Ever clear
Layers: 3
Used to create image: Photogram of tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) leaf
Challenges or observations:
The magenta petals, collected along the shoreline in Bristol, RI were crushed by a community of BEING [with] TREES Anthotype Workshop participants in a mortar and mixed with distilled water and a bit of ever clear alcohol produced a rich, purple emulsion. Exposure time for this print was two days in bright, direct sunlight. Some condensation created by moisture from the leaf was noted during the exposure process. Documentation taken 8/16/22 shows slight fading where the leaf of the tulip tree came into contact with the emulsion during the contact printing process.
