Cyanotype is a captivating photographic process that produces a cyan-blue print. Simply coat your surface with a special light-sensitive solution, lay your chosen items on top, leave them out in the sun or under a UV light, then watch your items magically print on your chosen surface with a beautiful blue background. Although traditionally used for photos, it’s a fun, easy and inexpensive way to transform a whole range of ordinary objects into extraordinary blue-hue keepsakes.

In this book, artist and teacher Kim Tillyer will show you the basics of the process and get you started creating your own cyanotype masterpieces. There are 10 inspiring projects to make, from artworks to décor and accessories. Beginning with simple yet stunning botanical prints on paper and fabric, gradually explore different textures, templates, gradients, tones and even embroidered embellishments with every new make. Clear step-by-step instructions and gorgeous photography also accompany all the techniques and projects, as well as Kim’s friendly tips and advice. You’ll soon discover how beautifully versatile cyanotype printing can be.

So whether you're seeking a new artistic outlet or a way to infuse your gifts with a touch of blue, this beginner-friendly guide will be your passport to demystifying the art of cyanotype.
