Cyano-what? Cyanotype! What is it, then?

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.

How does it work?

When using our DIY cyanotype kit, you’ll create a light-sensitive sheet of paper. Then find a pretty leaf to use as your model, cover it with the glass and let the sun work its magic to print on the paper. The 2 x100ml bottles are plenty to use for the 24 sheets of paper. You can use the leftover materials on textiles (natural fibers such as cotton or silk), other papers, or even wood. The components in powder form can be kept for many years. Once mixed with water, you can keep it for a year or so.  Did you use up your kit already, and you’re ready to make even more prints? We have a refill-pack available as well.

Final notes

-Video tutorial available with English, Dutch, German and French captions.

-Explore creativity. Create with nature’s shapes and your compositions.

– A botanical gift idea. Nothing more thoughtful than a personal print of their favorite flower, made by you.

– Bonus art print. We’ve included a reproduction of a cyanotype print made by Botanopia, just for you.

    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!

    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.
