Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea spectabilis) anthotype by Hannie MommersBougainvillea (Bougainvillea spectabilis) for making anthotypesAmount: 2 handfuls (half a glass jar)
Extracted using: Mortar
Thinner: Tap water
Layers: 3
Used to create the image: Photogram of small feathers

Challenges or observations: This was my first time making an anthotype, so I didn’t have all the right attributes. That’s why I used tap water and couldn’t filter the mixture. I used dark-coloured and white feathers. The dark-coloured ones gave a better result.
