Fine Arts Friday: Cyanotypes
Friday, February 22, 2013 - 10:00am - 1:00pm
In this workshop participants will learn to make beautiful, blue-toned prints. Cyanotype is an old process in which fine art paper is coated with a mixture of two chemicals and then allowed to dry. The dried and coated paper can be contact printed using negatives to make a photographic print, or objects can be placed directly on the coated paper to create silhouette designs.
We will learn how to coat and dry the paper, create digital negatives, and then we’ll explore two exposure methods, using direct sunlight or an Ultraviolet Exposure unit.
Participants should bring a high resolution (300 dpi) digital image that will be converted to black and white and output onto film. If you do not have a digital image, we will have negatives to choose from that participants may use for the workshop.
