Let’s try something new! Delve into the world of an alternative photography technique and discover the colour blue in cyanotype printing.
The cyanotype or ‘blue print’ is one of photography’s oldest printing methods. It is a photographic process that involves two chemicals to coat the paper. These chemicals make the paper sensitive to UV light, resulting in a deep ‘Prussian blue’ image. This process was originally created in 1842.
Like a true alchemist you can use a negative image or drawings on tracing paper, but you can also use real objects to experiment with image production.
All this without the use of a camera? Enrol here and find out.
