Experimental Cyanotype on Glass

Cyanotype on glass was a small experiment I conducted on using different mediums for standard analog printing. Today, printing on photo-sensitive paper, usually silver-gelatin, is the bread and butter standard to hand print photos. Since I have gotten a bit used to silver-gelatin printing, I wanted to try and see how printing on non-standard mediums would be like. Printing on glass is not a novelty by historical standards, although the practice is rare, there was a time that even negatives were made using glass plates. These sizes were also known as full and half-plates given the specific size of the negative holder.
