Cyanotype: a how-to guide

Zine Review: Cyanotype a how-to guide

Cyanotype: a how-to guide

This ¼ size zine introduces the world of using sunlight to make blueprints / exposures on paper, cotton, wool and other materials. The process involves some basic chemistry & a small darkroom set-up but can be done in anyone’s house or apartment.

There is also a brief resource list for further reading / learning. Let's get away from the computer printer & back to basics (and fun).
