Cyanotyping (blueprinting) Kit & Book

 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’.
  • Exposure
  • Processing
  • So you don’t want blue – toning, under-dyeing, over-dyeing and painting.
  • Taking care of your cyanotypes.
  • Health & Safety
  • Suppliers
  • Bibliography
