Cyanotype is a cameraless 170-year-old photographic printing process. The distinctive dark greenish-blue is the result of combining equal parts of ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide. The final print is created by placing objects onto the sensitized paper with the action of ultraviolet light. The Cyanolumen process is a variation on the traditional cyanotype method, where the surface of expired silver gelatin paper is coated with cyanotype chemistry prior to exposure. Additional spices and solutions such as salt, paprika, and apple cider vinegar produce unique interactions and color variations.
