Much like learning to ride a bike or the first day of school, cyanotypes are a rite of passage for the photographically minded, or otherwise artistically inclined. Fun and experimental, this alternative photo process is one that can be continued with ease for a lifetime. Blue Sunprints makes it even easier to do so, with their Cyanotype Cotton Squares (6 x 6", 25 Pack, White). Pre-washed and pre-treated, these fabric sheets are ready to print out under the most natural camera you can find: the sun. Just pick the items you want for your designs, and get to it! The end result will be beautiful, blue and white images, reminiscent of a blue print.
Once exposed, these cyanotypes can be rinsed with non-phosphate detergent. They're safe for repeated washing as well, which makes them ideal for use on clothing, household linens, or other fabrics. And because both sides of the sheet can be printed on, the possibilities are endless. The durable cotton can also be embellished if so you choose with bead work, stitching, or other creative enhancements. The sheets are made from natural fibers, so, they're archival as well, meaning that they'll last for years to come.
