Blackberry (Rubus Fruticosus) anthotype by Reuben Frank WoodsBlackberry (Rubus Fruticosus) for making anthotypesAmount: Unknown
Extracted using: Blender and straining cloth
Thinner: Alcohol + a few drops of vinegar
Layers: 1
Used to create image: Plant photogram

Challenges or observations: The added vinegar created a lovely lilac colour, rather than the bluer non-vinegar emulsion. This emulsion could definitely be improved with a second or third coat and a longer exposure time. When dried hanging up, the emulsion retained its colour; however, other sheets that were dried lying down became an unpleasant yellow-grey colour.
