Cyanotype Prints

Make beautiful cyan-blue prints through the alternative photographic process of cyanotype printing. Create a composition with objects of personal meaning, then use light-sensitive photo emulsion to create a cyanotype—an evocative blue image—on paper or fabric. Turn your prints into a mixed-media masterpiece with collage, stitches, drawing and more. Limit 8 students
