Challenges or observations: With a powder, you will definitely need to add some moisture. I used vodka, but I’m sure a number of different liquids would work just as well. The watercolour paper was difficult to coat evenly. I’ll be spending more time experimenting with the application process in the future.
Additional information: I only discovered anthotypes a few months before World Anthotype Day 2023. It’s been a lot of fun experimenting with emulsions and I’m looking forward to 2024 already!
