Turmeric (Curcuma longa) anthotype by Alina VuxanoviciTurmeric (Curcuma longa) anthotypeAmount: 2 tbsp turmeric; 8 tbsp domestic alcohol
Extracted using: Turmeric powder and alcohol were bought
Thinner: Alcohol
Layers: 2
Used to create image: Photogram of locust leaves

Challenges or observations:

  • The thinner the paper is, the more the background looks “stained”.
  • The more layers of coating, the more exposure time is needed (exponential maybe).
  • This specific artwork I submitted could have been exposed a few more hours in the hot blazing sun.

Additional information: This is my first anthotype and, although it is not what I was hoping for, I am still thinking it is delicate through its imperfection.
