cyanotypes 29 September

Cyanotypes with Sharon Anderson 
More information HERE

Cyanotypes are a very early form of photography and were used in building plans in the form of ‘blueprints’. Cyanotypes are easy and fun to make. They can be exposed outside using the sun’s ultraviolet rays or inside using an exposure box with UV lights.  Weather permitting, we will try both. Another technique we can attempt is ‘wet cyanotype’ which can give an unpredictable but very interesting image. This is a more creative approach to cyanotypes.
