I'm still trying to figure out where to lay blame to this.
My friend suggested I do "Ian Leake Leeks" for a visual pun.
Andrea (weismier)'s green tea toned cyanotypes are very pretty so I decided to try it for myself today.


Now I'm not sure if I like it or not. I kind of got excited by them and I'm having mixed feelings about it generally. I think I may have to tack them up around the flat to see how I can live with them.

I'm not too keen on the colour, which could be my monitor, it doesn't suggest anything to me. That should not deter you from experimenting though. What about ordinary tea, or coffee as a toner, what colour does that produce?

Ordinary Tea ones are too disgustingly brown all over

Coffee looks okay but the last time I looked at it, it had faded, so I don't think it's stable at all so won't use it.

On my monitor it has a rather purple-ish hue. Does it become slightly (not overbearingly) browner with very dilute ordinary tea, or a blend or green tea and ordinary tea?
I like the colour of your coffee-toned prints.
