Creative: Cyanotype Printing
Use a photographic printing process to produce beautiful cyan-blue prints
Cyanotype printing, invented in 1842, originally had its origins in reproductions. It's a photographic printing method once used regularly for the production of blueprints (psst -- BLUEprints...CYANotype...that signature blue color... you get it ;) )
Aside from this traditional usage, it can also be applied artistically to create some gorgeous one-of-a-kind prints using materials you probably already have lying around the house! (Aside from the photographic formula, of course...)
We'll go through the process and walk you through how to create beautiful botanical prints using cyanotype.
Please note - this is probably our most supply-dependent course offering. Not only will you need specific photographic chemicals, but also a dark room where your prints can develop in total darkness!
