Anthotypes from lilacs when you do anthotyping
“Lantern shadow” by Malin Fabbri, 2011.The color of the petals is often different from the color of the final print. This golden brown print was made from emulsion from the blue flower of a Common lilac (Syringa vulgaris).

Start by finding plants suitable for making anthotypes and where to get them: Finding plants and pigments for making anthotypes.

But, be careful, even beautiful plants can be dangerous!: Safety first – plants to watch when making anthotypes.

Pick a good paper: How different paper effects the emulsion color.

Get down to printing: Step by step instructions to making a print using plants.

For more indepth reading and inspiring work, get the book: Anthotypes – Explore the darkroom in your garden and make photographs using plants.

…or read more articles here: Anthotype articles and artists.

Just so you know, “anthotyping” is probably not a real word, but it sounds as fun as the process of anthotypes is.
