The Photographer's Formulary New Cyanotype Printing Kit was formulated by Dr. Michael Ware. The formula was established in the Jan/Feb. 1997 issue of Photo Techniques.

According to Dr. Ware, The "New" Cyanotype process uses a single sensitizer solution, having a long shelf life, to make prints of an excellent stable blue color and a long tonal response, and with a speed much faster than the traditional process."

The" New"  Cyanotype kit also loses little, if any, blue color in the final wash water, and is much more suited to a greater variety of papers.

This kit will produce approximately 50 - 8 x 10" prints if the sensitizer is applied with a glass coating rod (makes 100 ml (3.3 oz.) of solution).

Note: Item requires the use of mortar and pestle and 4 oz jug (none are included)

New Cyanotype Kit - 100ml/Makes 50 8x10" Prints is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting formula for Cyanotype The new formula is not much more difficult than the old formula. Be sure to wear gloves when you are preparing the solutions. You will need to be able to keep water and solutions warm, but that requires only a water bath. Note that the instruction sheet has a few grammar errors which may mislead you. Be sure to have Mike Ware's web site for comparison. If you use warmer water for the Ammonium Ferricyanide, you do not need to grind it. But if you do grind it, be sure you have a dust mask. The final, mixed solution results in a green precipitate in the beaker. It will stick to the glass. But it will come off with a good stirring rod or some other implement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from tedious but good This product was not what I was expecting. It took about two hours to complete the mixture, and part of it you have to keep at 120 degrees. Definitely a learning experience. Didn't turn out quite as blue as I am use to, even when placing the print in hydrogen peroxide to bring out the blue. Totally makes what it says, and then some if you are conservative. I'd buy it again if need be, but I would prefer to buy the two parts premixed so that I don't have to go through the process of mixing part A and part B myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but RESPIRATOR SHOULD BE USED This is a kit for the chemicals to make cyanotypes. It is very simple to use. HOWEVER, you should have amber eye-dropper bottles for the chemicals after you mix them, as your prints will not require much. THESE EYE DROPPERS ARE NOT INCLUDED. Also, the silver nitrate comes in crystal form which must be crushed with a mortar and pestle (also not included) before mixed and strained. THIS SHOULD BE DONE WITH A RESPIRATOR. BREATHING IN SILVER NITRATE IS NOT GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH. Something that is not mentioned in the instructions. Good product, if incomplete. Warnings should be posted clearly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy This product is great for people just learning about the cyanotype process as well as for professional alternative processors. Everything you need is there, no shopping around to eight different websites for all the chemicals and materials and then not really knowing what do with the chemistry or what the risks are. Yes, sometimes buying the bulk chemicals can be cheaper, but not by much I assure you. Besides, who wouldn't pay a little extra for convenience?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 150 years old process that still works I used this kit with watercolor paper and high contrast negatives. the preparation of the coating solution was very easy, and once coated, it dries in mere minutes. the blue hue produced by this process are incredibely intense, and very good pictures can be obtain with a short exposure to sunlight. my average exposure time was around 10 minutes. ( but my negs are very dense. ) best results are obtained a few days after the solution was made, when it turns to a pale olive oil color. This kit is great!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prefer the Liquid Cyanotype Kit This is a fine kit, but mixing the chemistry is a lot of work. You need a lot of things: mortar and pestle, respirator/dust mask, gloves, funnel, coffee filter to filter out the muck, dark brown plastic container for the chemistry. Make sure you get all of your necessary accessories before you start mixing. I found the liquid cyanotype kit much easier to use. You just mix equal parts of A and B and you're ready to coat your paper, just like that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid basic cyanotype kit This was my first time making cyanotypes and this kit worked well for me- the prints are beautiful. However the directions were very unclear and I think you probably could find a kit that required fewer steps in mixing the chemicals.
