1.Toned cyanotype with Rowan Berries collected from the hedgerow ,boiled for 15 minutes in water and left to infuse for 24hrs,The juice was strained and used as a toner changing the original blueprint to a lovely rich hazelnut brown colour.

2. Toned Cyanotype with Horseradish leaves from the garden,boiled for 10 minutes and left to infuse for 24hrs.The resulting 'tea' toned the blueprint with lovely golden copper tones.

3.Toned Cyanotype with self seeded Himalayan Honeysuckle berries.These berries have a burnt caramel taste when ripe and cook down fast,I left to infuse in the water overnight and strained with a fine mesh the colour was a lovely pigeon grey, green tone.
