About This Class

Cyanotype is just plain awesome, and now it can be easier than ever to do it whenever you have the time.

In this class you will learn how to use cheap artificial lighting instead of the sun to make your cyanotype prints. It includes a refresher on the basic cyanotype process, but focuses on specific tips and tools related to printing inside with cheap artificial lighting.

Great class, thank you! Very helpful, 'cause there is not much sun here and it's more convenient not to depend on weather. Thanks again for tons of info!
