Cyanotype Tutorial

Cyanotype Scarf from Yellow Owl Workshop

Printing and silk screening on fabric is something that I have always been interested in but have never taken a crack at.  That interest has just grown with this tutorial from The Crafts Dept.  The method used in this tutorial is called cyanotype.  Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that prints using shadows and light.  The end result is a a cyan (blue) print.

In this tutorial, they use black paint to shadow out the sun.  The results are beautiful.  They started with this scarf with sensitizer that looks like this:

and end up with a beautiful scarf that looks like this:

We might have to create some artwork using the Cyanotype method this summer.  For now, you can check out the tutorial HERE.
