‘How to’ video

What is a cyanotype?
A cyanotype is a camera-less photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1841 and made famous by Kent based scientist Anna Atkins in her book titled ‘Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions’ in 1843.

How many prints will this kit make?
The chemicals mix up to 50ml total. There are 15 sheets of A5 paper included, but you will find your chemicals will stretch much further than this! You can coat any acid-free paper or fabric with your cyanotype solution, get creative! If you'd like any advice or for me to supply extra paper for an additional cost then feel free to contact me.
