Cyanotypes on Fabric, A Blueprint on how to product blueprints
Ruth Brown expertly and gently guides and teaches all you need to know to make stunning cyanotypes on fabric.
Cyanotypes are the result of treating fabric with a light sensitive chemical solution and then exposing the fabric to sunlight. Items placed on the fabric create shadows which resist the exposure to sunlight and form the final design. Once the fabric is rinsed the areas fully exposed to the sun turn a rich deep permanent blue beautifully complementing the classic white design.
Full of brilliant, clear instructions on how to make cyanotypes from items you can find about your home and garden, to digital media and negatives. With a range of techniques such as how to create photograms, how to dye and paint the resulting fabric to basics such as what type of fabrics to choose this book is a comprehensive guide to all you need to know about fabric cyanotypes and an encouragement to step out and let your creative side enjoy some experimentation.
