Anthotype by Marjan Van Der DonkViolet petals for making anthotype printsAmount: I made a larger batch of several handfulls
Extracted using: blender
Thinner: Vodka
Layers: 1
Used to create image: Positive on OHP paper (inkjet print)

Challenges or observations: Making a larger batch worked very well, I needed less vodka than with just a handful of petals. Exposure during a series of beautiful sunny days really sped up the process as compared to Spring.
