Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera) anthotype by Isabelle GoossensChristmas Cactus (Schlumbergera) anthotypeAmount: 5 flowers (only the red part)
Extracted using: Mortar
Thinner: None
Layers: 1,5
Used to create image: Photogram of fuchsia plant parts
Challenges or observations: the juice is very slimy; after sieving, there was not much left.
I do like the very subtle soft pink colour it gives; I would do it again.
I had to cut my exposure short because I dropped the glass frame: it got cracked and the plants started to shrivel up and displace.
