Cyanotype is in a single solution, and is an updated version of the original process. Using Ammonium Ferric
Oxalate to give a good blue that does not wash out, this solution is twice as sensitive to UV as the
Development in water and citric acid can be used to manipulate contrast
All images are made using the contact system, where the image depends on a negative of the appropriate size
Each kit contains chemicals, paper, gloves, glass rods and other ancillary equipment necessary for each process.
