Petunia, Brooklyn (Petunia violacea) anthotype by Brittonie FletcherPetunia, Brooklyn (Petunia violacea) for anthotypeAmount: For a quarter plate size 4 flowers
Extracted using: Mortar, Soaking
Thinner: Everclear and Patron
Layers: 1
Used to create image: Some ferns and a little chemistry

Challenges or observations:
Could have been exposed longer and would have liked to have actually printed a photo, but wanted to weigh in and celebrate the day. So, I went for an old faithful fern. Given the north light inside a window and cloudy days with NYC skyscrapers, petunia is pretty fast. I did not chase the light.
