Cyanotype is a contact print process that produces a blue on white or white on blue image when exposed to sunlight. Also known as a solar or sun print. It can be done on a variety of different surfaces such as paper, cloth, leather, etc. The Photographers’ Formulary kit provides the dry chemicals to be mixed to create the cyanotype solution.
The New Cyanotype processes uses a single sensitizer solution. It boasts a long shelf life and makes prints with a more stable blue that loses little color in the final wash stage. It is much faster than the traditional process as well. This kit will produce approximately 50 – 8×10 prints if the sensitizer is applied with a glass coating rod.
