In this video workshop we explore the chemistry of blueprints and the power of the sun with artist Emily Jeffords. Emily shares with us the process of cyanotype with a step-by-step guide on how she creates beautiful pieces of art using foliage and found objects. Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that dates back to the mid-1800s that was frequently used by engineers as an effective process to produce copies of drawings (or blueprints). The process uses two chemicals: ammonium ferric citrate and potassium ferricyanide. In this workshop, we are using hot pressed watercolor paper that is sturdy enough to withstand a coating of these chemicals (frequently referred to as Chemical A + Chemical B) as well as a water bath before the finished print is produced.
