Pokeberry (Phytolacca) anthotype by Laurie Beck PetersonPokeberry (Phytolacca) for making anthotypesAmount: Few tablespoons per print
Extracted using: Mortar
Thinner: Everclear Vodka
Layers: 3
Used to create image: Inkjet positive on Pictorico OHP transparency film

Challenges or observations: Pokeberry takes a very long time, so best to expose in the summer sun and make sure your positive or object has a good tonal range. Paper was coated in September 2021 and not initially exposed until March 2022. Sun was very weak, so I put it away for 4 months and exposed again in the strong August sun.
