Description

A cyanotype is a photographic printing technique, made using sunlight, that results in a cyan-blue print.

The process was discovered in 1842, and has been widely used by artists and photographers, but also engineers, as a way to create affordable copies of technical drawings.

Anna Atkins is considered to be the first woman photographer, and published a beautiful book called Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions, documenting the shapes of her local seaweed varieties. With our kit, you can use the exact same technique to create your own blue artwork with plants.

We’ve created a detailed video tutorial to show you the technique.

The 200ml of emulsion is plenty to expose not only the included 24 sheets, but also much more. You can then also try it on your own paper or textile (natural fibers such as cotton or silk). The components in powder form can be kept for many years. Once mixed, each bottle of solution can be kept (separate) for a year or so.

    I got these to do with my daughter and she loves it! They turned out so good 🙂 First I was a bit sceptical about all the chemistry and mixtures, but with the tutorial it’s actually really straight forward. Definitely recommend!

  2. Jeannette Hoogendijk (verified owner)

    Ik heb erg genoten van deze kit, een hele leuke techniek. Ik kende het helemaal niet, maar mijn resultaten zijn prachtig (vind ik zelf). je ziet alle kleine details van de planten en bloemen die je gebruikt. Ik ben normaliter geen ‘crea Bea’, dit is heel toegankelijk en de videotutorial is super.

    Wow wow wow. Habe jetzt nicht wirklich eine künstlerische Ader, aber mit dem Set klappt’s sogar bei mir. Die Drucke sind wunderschön und man sieht echt jedes Detail. Wird dieses Jahr definitiv ein Weihnachtsgeschenk 🤪

    Ich war zunächst etwas verunsichert, da es mit den verschiedenen Lösungen doch recht kompliziert aussah, aber das Video hat echt geholfen. Nach ein paar Runden hatte ich dann den Dreh raus.
