Cyanotypes on Fabric – book – Revised and re-printed
Cyanotyping is a simple process for producing subtle, detailed images on fabric. Prussian blue and white – calm, cool, classical and utterly beautiful. Mix this technique from the 1840s with natural leaves and flowers or with modern digital negatives, and perhaps some textile techniques, and you have a wide range of image making possibilities.
The book has 96 pages, all in full colour, and includes chapters on:
- Preparing the fabric (smooth, textured and restricted area backgrounds)
- Making the prints, including photograms, digital negatives, manipulating the fabric and ‘putting it all together’.
- So you don’t want blue – toning, under-dyeing, over-dyeing and painting.
- Taking care of your cyanotypes.
- Health & Safety

Cyanotype (Blueprint) chemicals kit
This contains the chemicals needed to make fabric light-sensitive. Included are 60g ferric ammonium citrate and 30g potassium ferricyanide plus a sheet of basic instructions and full health and safety information. There is enough in the kit to treat about 2m of a medium weight cotton – more if the fabric is lighter, less if the fabric is heavier.
