I have been working on a personal project creating Cyanotypes, and I thought you too might like to experiment with them.
Cyanotypes are a very old and traditional photographic form of printing which came about in the 1800s. I love their inky indigo blues and how natural they are, as you need to work with sunlight to expose them.
They really are completely handmade images, using the sun, paper and a collected object sandwiched in between.
What I probably love the most about cyanotypes is that they are playful and completely unpredictable. It’s really lovely to create without the pressure of always getting something ‘perfect’ or ‘right’. I find it’s more beautiful this way.
I have just added a handful of Cyanotype Kits here into my shop. This is a great project to do with kids!
I have also published a blog post to help guide you through the process of making Cyanotypes, click here to read.
The size of your paper will determine how many you will be able to create. I easily get 60 out of this kit, using a 6x8" paper.
Made in Australia.
Inside The Cyanotype Kit you will find:
- Two bottles of 50ml chemistry
- A syringe to measure your chemistry
We are unable to accept exchanges or refunds of The Cyanotype Kit for change of mind.
