Cyanotype Process

** We are currently out of Ferric Ammonium Citrate, green flakes! The brown flakes have come in. This is Solution A in the Cyanotype kits. As of 10/7/2020 our ETA for green flakes is about 6 weeks. All kits will contain brown FAC flakes for the time being**

Cyanotype is a beautiful prussian blue print process, first discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1842.

Cyanotype Printing Instructions

It uses two chemicals, Ferric Ammonium Citrate and Potassium Ferricyanide, that yield a monochromatic "Prussian Blue" print when mixed together.

Our Cyanotype kits are based off the traditional formula, come as two bottles with pre-measured out powders. To use, simply fill each bottle up to the top with water and give it a good shake! 

For this process, we recommend using 100% cotton rag paper, muslin, or silk! Arches Platine, Revere Platinum, Hahnemuhle Platinum Rag, Hahnmuhle Sumi-E, and Rives BFK are very suitable choices for this process!

**A note on the Sumi-E, this is a paper that we sell only for Cyanotype. It is a paper that is best coated by mixing up a bulk mixture of Solution A and B in a large plastic or glass containter, dipping a wet synthetic sable hair brush into the mixture, and "painting" the solution on to the paper using multiple brush strokes.**

    In honor of World Cyanotype day, we are offering a new kit! 

     

    Included in this kit: 

    1 250ml Cyanotype Printing Kit 

    1 24 x 36 in piece of 100% cotton cloth, will make (6) 12 in square flags

    3 pairs of nitrile gloves, M or L

    3 12oz plastic cups for soaking

    3 2 oz cups for measuring

     

     

    If you choose to make fewer flags, cut only 12 inch squares for the flags and use the larger piece of fabric to make a pillow top, a framed picture (an embroidery hoop makes a quick frame), a stool cover, pot holder, or think up anohter great idea! Just have fun.  

     

     



     
     
     

    Get Ready For

     

    WORLD CYANOTYPE DAY

    brought to you by the artists of Shootapalooza

    https://www.worldcyanotypeday.com/wcd-2018

     

    SEPT. 28, 2019

     

    Land/Sea/Sky is the theme this year

     

     

    Everyone in the world is invited to participate!

     

    Bostick & Sullivan has designed a special Cyanotype kit that includes fabric to make six 12 inch square flags that you can send to the A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX for display.

     

    Your cyanotype flag must arrive to the gallery by Sept.16, 2019.

     

    The flags will then be strung together to symbolize unity and beauty. The installation will hang in the Gallery until October 21, 2019. The flags will then be taken to New Orleans to the Healing Arts Center for an exhibition beginning in December for PhotoNola until the end of Mardi Gras 2020.

     

    For those who can't come in person to celebrate in Johnson City on Sept.28th,

    You may want to plan a special gathering with friends and family to do your own celebration in your backyard, a parking lot, a park, a gallery – wherever your gathering spot may be – to connect, create and celebrate this beautiful planet we inhabit by creating cyanotype flags together!

     

    Send your flags to:

    A Smith Gallery

    103 N. Nugent #175
