Kit for making your own beautiful blue cyanotype images.
Comes with the two bottles of chemicals ready to mix,gloves and clear, easy to use instructions. (does not include any completed examples or blank fabric/paper – those in the photograph are for illustration only)
All you will need is a plastic bowl or pot to mix your equal amounts of the chemicals into and your choice of paintbrush or sponge applicator. And of course something to apply it onto! You can make cyanotypes on anything natural and porous – paper, cotton, silk, wood, stone, etc. To create your final image you have to expose the treated surface to the sun with some form of resist/object which makes the picture or pattern. The chemicals react with the UV light changing colour, once exposed for long enough you then remove your objects and place the ‘picture’ in ordinary water to wash off any unwanted & unexposed chemical and you will now see the blue start to appear. Cyanotypes are one of the oldest forms of photographic process and once created are very resilient to UV light and fading.
