Learn to create beautiful Cyanotype art prints with deeper blues and a longer tonal range using the modern cyanotype process in this hands-on workshop. But—cyanotype process prints can be so much more than basic blue! We will experiment with different printing methods of toning and bleaching, techniques which allow you to alter the color and mood of your final print.
The cyanotype process was introduced in the 19th century. Unlike the silver process used in traditional black and white photography, cyanotype photographs are made using a cyanotype formula consisting of a solution of iron compounds that react to UV light. Images can be taken with a camera or made by placing objects directly on the cyanotype paper.
The relative simplicity of cyanotype printing methods makes it a great introduction to those new to alternative process printing. However, the beautiful tonality and artistic flexibility also recommends this photo printing process for serious fine art practitioners.
