Cyanotype Chemicals and Treated Fabric Sheets

Cyanotype is an photographic process for the simple production of Prussian blue monochromatic prints. Beginning in the mid-19th century photographers, architects and naturalists used cyanotype to reproduce images, plans and to document plants and animals in an easy 3 step process.

Cyanotype employs both Potassium Ferricyanide and Ferric Ammonium Citrate, a light sensitive iron salt, two inexpensive chemicals that when mixed with water and exposed to sunlight, result in deep blue prints. Designs from objects layered on top create an imprinted image. Prints can be made on any natural surface, including cotton, linen, silk, canvas, wool, paper, wood and leather.
