How To Use:

Set-up a mixing area using news papers or drop cloths in a low light area.
Mix dry compounds (green & red) with two cups hot water in 1 quart mixing can - add the dry compounds into the quart mixing can and then add two cups hot water (100 degrees or better - the hot water helps dissolve the dry compounds) and stir with mixing spoon.

Brush cyanotype solution on to watercolor paper and/or other 100% natural fabrics i.e., cotton, silk, rayon, linen, etc. - and let dry in a cool dark location - you can also use a hair dryer to speed-up the drying process.
Place design on treated material - for best results, if printing a transparency, use a clip frame to hold in place your design.
Expose to UV light - sun or UV lamp.

Rinse you cyanotype print with water until the water is clear - about 1 minute or so - take care not to over saturate the print and risk tearing it.

  • Dry compounds last a year.
