Blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) anthotype by Tommy HurtigBlackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) for making anthotypesAmount: 15 grams
Extracted using: Mortar
Thinner: None
Layers: 2
Used to create image: Laser printed OHP positive
Challenges or observations: I developed two prints at the same time, one in a glass frame and one in a plastic frame. The plastic frame did not develop at the same speed. I can only assume there are different optical properties between glass and plastic, like surface reflection or UV protection that makes glass much better than plastic.

Additional info: The weather was a mix of cloudy and sunny and the print was exposed both indoors and outdoors.
