Teach yourself how to make a sun print, 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!
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
I will send you a kit which includes:
- Sponge Brush x1
- Bottle of ‘Part A’ Potassium Ferricyanide powder – 9g
- Bottle of ‘Part B’ Ferric Ammonium Citrate powder – 21.5g
- 'How to' Instructions
Ideally Part A and B needs to be mixed 24 hours before use (details in 'How to' Instructions). We will need a sunny day to run the class (unless you have access to a UV tanning lamp).
- White card to print on
- Dried botanicals, leaves etc
- Bowl of room temperature water
- Non UV glass pane or cling film
- Bulldog clips or pegs
- Hair drier
- Canvas or stiff board
I have successfully made prints in doors during the winter months - just place near a window to expose to UV light.
