Printmaking Departments That Sell - The Art Dog Blog
Cyanotype is a type of printing where UV rays are used to imprint the color onto a surface. A negative of an image or an object is placed onto the coated surface and left in sunlight or under a UV lamp. The solution will begin to change color during exposure. The exposed part of the paper will fade in the UV exposure. Once fully processed, the paper is rinsed with water and an image of the negative or object develops is left behind with a blue (or other colored) background.

From @makeeatsleeprepeat: “I am so excited to share this #Roscoedress I made for a collaboration with @truebias! I knew I wanted to challenge myself with this one so I decided to make my own design for the fabric using white linen and #jacquardproducts #cyanotype. For the pattern I collected leaves from near my parents home. For the top tier I used ferns, for the middle I used eucalyptus, for the bottom I used jasmine, and for the sleeves I used clippings from a bush that I couldn’t identify bu
