Red Pepper (Capsicum annuum) anthotype by Cecília CartaxoRed Pepper (Capsicum annuum) for making anthotypesAmount: A half of a red pepper
Extracted using: Blender
Thinner: red pepper’s own water
Layers: 4 layers
Used to create image: Laser printed OHP positive

Challenges or observations:
I put the red part of the pepper in the blender, then I strained the emulsion 4x so it could get very clean.

Additional information:
I found the power of the red pepper thanks to an incredible Brazilian anthotype researcher: Aurora Narmada Sugasti. She did a big research project on different kinds of plants found in Brazil that can be used in anthotype. The red pepper was one of them.
