Harness the power of the sun with Jaquards Cyanotype products.

Cyanotype was one of the earliest photographic techniques developed and the first to involve the sun in the developing process. Discovered in 1842 and recognized for producing gorgeous, Prussian blue monochromatic images, Cyanotype has been used to reproduce photographs, architectural blueprints, and to create impressions of biological specimens in the field. Cyanotype may be used to create detailed prints from any object that casts a shadow: leaves, tools, lace, etc. Simply place an object on Jacquard’s sensitized cyanotype surface and expose to sunlight (UV). Jacquards Cyanotype products can also be used to create full-resolution photographs on paper or fabric with the use of an inverted photographic negative.

Key Features:
  • Sun exposure time is 3-10 minutes
  • Pre-sensitized Cyanotype fabric
Perfect For:
  • Quilters and Surface Design Artists
  • Photographers

Product Overview

Harness the power of the sun with Jaquards Cyanotype products.

Cyanotype is one of the earliest photographic processes and is distinctive for its Prussian blue monochromatic prints. Famously, cyanotype was used by Ana Atkins and other field biologists for indexing plant specimens with what were called photograms at the time. The Cyanotype process is incredibly simple and only employs two inexpensive chemicals and UV sunlight. Prints can be created on any natural fiber: paper, cotton, silk, wool, wood, etc.

Jacquard has made Cyanotype printing easy as pie with pre-sensitized fabric that is ready for cyanotype printing. Simply pull the sheet out of the package, place objects or an inverted photographic negative on top, expose to light for three to fifteen minutes, submerge the fabric in water to reveal the blue cyanotype print, and finally hang the fabric to line dry. With Jacquard’s Cyanotype Pretreated Mural Fabric you can actually create a full-body print by laying on top of the mural fabric for the duration of exposure while not moving. The creative possibilities for Photographers, Mixed Media Artists, and Quilters are endless!

If you would prefer to use your own papers or fabric Jacquard has made the chemistry of Cyanotype attainable with lightproof black bottles of Potassium Ferricyanide and Ferric Ammonium Citrate. The chemicals used for cyanotype are inexpensive and go a long way. Despite their perhaps alarming names, both are safe to handle and mix. That said, care should be taken to avoid ingestion, inhalation, and contact with skin. The instructions for the use of Potassium Ferricyanide and Ferric Ammonium Citrate are included in the link bellow
