 The cyanotype kit is two part solution relatively inexpensive and easy to use. After exposure to UV light (sun)the image is developed out in water  – no other chemicals are required. Colour may be easily modified by a variety of toning agents – it can be applied to fabrics and other surfaces.
The characteristic cyan blue colour is embedded in the fibres of the paper.

History –  Sir John Herschel’s traditional cyanotype process practiced since 1842 became known as Blueprint.  The “Blue print” was used extensively as a copying process for engineers and architects.See the information on the New Cyanotype Mike Wares chemically updated version  http://www.mikeware.co.uk/mikeware/Traditional_Cyanotype.html
