Cyanotype is a photographic printing technique, using sunlight, which produces a cyan blue print.
This process was discovered in 1842 and has been widely used by artists and photographers, but also by engineers, to create copies of technical drawings at an affordable price.
Anna Atkins is considered the first female photographer, and has published a beautiful book entitled British Seaweed Photographs: Cyanotype Prints, which documents the forms of local seaweed varieties. With our kit, you can use exactly the same technique to create your own blue prints with plants.
The 200 ml of emulsion is enough to expose not only the 24 cards included, but also much more. You can then try it on your own paper or textile (natural fibres such as cotton or silk). The active powder products can be stored for many years. Once mixed, each bottle of solution can be stored (separately) for about a year.
