Cyanotype: Stockport college

Here are another selection of Cyanotypes (Sun-prints) this time depicting Stockport college selected from some of my digital photographs. The photographs I chose were transferred onto special inkjet compatible OHP transparencies before being used to create the final images. Some moisture blotted the transparency image creating a watery look to the ‘window’ print which was a bit of serendipity.

Here is one of my cyanotype prints I produced a few years ago at a workshop.

According to Wilkipedia, a Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide.
