Cyanotype is an old photographic printing process that produces each time slightly different results of the same negative. If they are toned as it is the case here with tannin acid solution the kinds of variations increase. Partly for me that‘s the charm of this method which was discovered in 1842.
Little by little I learn how to make cyanotypes. The advantage of this old method is that it’s rather simple and one doesn’t have to use toxic chemicals. Engelbert Reis called my attention to it and Andreas Reh helped, so first presentable results are on hand. Among others I find this picture quite successful:

My contribution presumably will show a fretless electric bass from the midth of the eighties by “Ibanez” named “Musician” (MC2940). I am not interested in documentation and so I will show the instrument only in details. Here an example:
