DIY Kit: Cyanotype Christmas Card Printing Kit



Create your own cyanotype print at home in the style of Anna Atkins, who is considered to be a pioneering female photographer.

Teach yourself how to make Christmas Card sun prints, otherwise known as a cyanotype - this type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or an expensive darkroom.

Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.

The printing process is accessible, super easy and you will be able to create a stunning final work of art with its signature Prussian blue colour within minutes!
