UV Light Setup for Making Cyanotypes

UV Light Setup for Making Cyanotypes - student project

This is an Everbeam 50W UV light hanging from a tripod.  When I make an exposure it is about a foot above the cyanotype paper.  Exposure times are 20 to 45 minutes for cyanotypes developed in water.  If the cyanotype is developed in vinegar the exposure time is reduced by half.  The exposure time for this cyanotype was 45 minutes.UV Light Setup for Making Cyanotypes - image 1 - student project
