Hey y'all, I am working on a series of cyanotypes in which I manipulate my paper/fabric before exposing - I fold and gather parts together to create a textural effect and, in some cases, sharp lines that intersect each other and form geometric fields of blue and white. The results have proven to be promising so far, and are somewhat similar to Walead Beshty's photograms. My inspiration for this project is the meditative studies by Simon Hantai; my ultimate goal is to create rhythm through shape and balance while using a limited color palette. But on to my question: has anyone successfully made cyanotypes on mulberry paper (aka rice paper)? I did a test run this evening and while the paper held up surprisingly well to being, well, crumpled, by the time I had fully developed the print the paper began to disintegrate. I would very much like to continue using this paper because the creases that formed while folding tend to soften while submerged, and in water it behaves more like fabric than true paper. Was I simply not gentle enough? Or do I need to make some sort of contraption to prevent the paper from moving too much while developing? Any insight into using this fickle substrate will be greatly helpful, because so far my trials with watercolor paper and canvas haven't yielded such potentially polished results. Thanks!
