What is Cyanotype?

Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that turns pictures blue. To make one, you coat paper with special chemicals that react to sunlight. Then, you place objects or negatives on the paper and expose it to sunlight. The areas where the sunlight hits turn blue, while the covered parts stay white. After rinsing the paper in water, you have a cool blue-and-white picture!

Everybody will get the chance to compose, print and develop two images on the day. Using transparent paper and a marker, they’ll create their “negative” drawing. This will act as a stencil so that when it’s put on top of photosensitive paper it will block out the light in the areas that are drawn on, allowing the rest of the paper to be “exposed” to the UV light for a couple of minutes. This will then be soaked in water to stop the exposure process, this step is called “developing”.

Then we’ll repeat
