Cyanotypes for sale!

Well, the cyanotype count is at 38 and likely to stay there until my new shipment of my favorite paper arrives (as well as 25 sheets of yet another contender). The good news is that I have three that I feel are of high enough quality to sell on eBay. I also have quite a few I added to the Cyanotype Experiment Gallery - most of them were rejected because they were printed on a paper that turned out to be very contrasty (great for some images, not so great for others) but where I was unable to totally control the blue bleeding out into the white area during the drying stage. Some of them are vey cool - you could either decide the bleeding was rustic or just mat over it frankly and get a great cyanotype at half price but it's really up to you.

The eBay ones are just in the store, not at auction, so they may not attract much attention. I'd like to get a few more good ones before really promoting them. Still, they're one of a kind, if you like that particular image I wouldn't wait before buying it. I'll be printing different pictures for a while to see what works and what doesn't and it may be a while before I get back to that one.

Obviously in the long run I'll get more information on the website about the process and start selling the non-experimental ones here as well but due to some personal commitments I probably won't be able to get to it for a bit. I have to give them credit - eBay's great when you don't have a lot of time for setup but still want to get something out there.
