Jacquard Cyanotype Kit

Jacquard Cyanotype Kit


The Jacquard Cyanotype Kit is a two-component kit for photographic blueprints on paper and fabric.

Cyanotype is the ‘original’ sun-printing process, one of the earliest photographic techniques. Discovered in 1842 and distinctive for producing rich, Prussian blue monochromatic prints, it was popular well into the 20th century as an inexpensive method for reproducing photographs, documents, maps and plans (hence the enduring architectural term blueprint) and famously, for making impressions of biological specimens in the field (photograms).

Harness the power of the sun to make detailed prints from virtually any object that casts a shadow: tools, toys, plants, leaves, stones, sand, string, lace, etc. Simply place the object on the sensitised surface and expose it to sunlight. Use a digitally-printed photographic negative (an inverted black and white photo inkjet-printed onto a transparency) instead of an object to create full-resolution photographs on paper or fabric. Great for photographers, mixed media artists, printmakers, quilters, kids and more. The cyanotype process is easy, forgiving, quick, magical and fun. It can be used on any natural fibre/porous surface including cotton, linen, silk, canvas, wood, paper, wood and leather.

This set contains enough chemistry to make approximately sixty-five 8in x 10in prints on paper or fifty 8in x 10in prints on fabric. The two components are: Part A - Potassium Ferricyanide (a red iron salt used with Ferric Ammonium Citrate for cyanotype) and Part B - Ferric Ammonium Citrate (a light-sensitive iron salt used with Potassium Ferricyanide for cyanotype).
