Fun in the Sun - Cyanotype kits by CPB

Rs. 650.00

Cyanotype printing, which involves developing prints by exposing 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 kit provides enough chemistry to coat 50-80 sheets of A4 paper

The Basic CPB Cyanotype kit contains 

  • Part A: Potassium Ferricyanide (10gm)
  • Part B: Ferric Ammonium Citrate (25gm)
  • 1 x Pipette
  • 1 x 25ml plastic beaker for mixing
  • One foam Brush 

Additional items required for you to make cyanotype prints at home:
1. Wooden/MDF Board with a matching sized glass or acrylic sheet // one can also use a readymade photo frame.
2. Hydrogen Peroxide (optional) - available at most medicine shops
3. Watercolour paper - 200 gsm and above is better 
4. Rubber Gloves

Instructions: 

To use the chemistry, please make 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. 

Please note: Wood + Glass easels and Hydrogen Peroxide is available for purchase at the CPB Foundation offices for in-person pickups only. For in-person orders please write to shop@chennaiphotobiennale.com or call +91 6383 135 139

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
