Cyanotype was a very early type of photography that uses UV light from the sun to change color pigment in special blue paper. You can buy paint to make this paper, or buy “sun paper” or cyanotype paper. I purchased Sun Paper.
I didn’t have much luck in this in the actual sun (maybe the outside temp wasn’t warm enough or I needed to leave it out longer) so this was done by leaving my “photo” under my OttLight for 30 min or so.
I created a template to put my 4x6 in photo in the middle, then carved a small 1" stamp that I stamped around.
This is a cool printmaking process that I hope to use as a class curriculum when (looking likely!) I get to teach art hopefully next year.
