In sustainable new packaging, we now provide an A5-sized plastic tray along with all the components and a detailed step-by-step guide. With this kit, you can make Cyanotype prints wherever you are, at home or on holiday - from calculating exposure time, and making prints to bleaching and toning everything you need is in the box.

Cyanotype printing, which involves developing prints by exposing the chemically coated paper to the sun, is one of the most accessible alternative photographic processes. The CPB Foundation is excited to make available its Fun in the Sun Cyanotype Kit, in a convenient ready-to-use powder form.  All you have to do is mix some distilled water and you are ready to go. Once in liquid form, the kits can last for up to a year if stored in a cool dark place. The chemistry provided is enough to coat 50-80 sheets of A4 paper.

If the kit has been shipped to you, the chemistry is in powdered form.

To use the chemistry, please mix Part A and Part B in equal quantities in the beaker provided. Use the pipette to draw the right amount of chemistry from each bottle and mix the two together. When mixed together, the chemical becomes light-sensitive and will remain usable for a few hours, please work indoors in subdued light.
