About This Class

In this class we will use cyanotype to make 3 different styles of ornaments on 3 different surfaces for you to do some unique decorating around your own house or to give as handmade gifts this Holiday. The experimental nature of cyanotype will allow you to make completely unique and beautiful ornaments of your own, and we'll look at some options for how you could add some additional ornamentation with paints, pens and sewing.

This project does build on some basic cyanotype techniques covered in my Cyanotype 101 & 102 courses, so you may want to check those out first.

Some new techniques covered in this project include:

  • coating fabric
  • coating wood
