Here's how it works: when the cyanotype fabric is exposed to sunlight, a chemical reaction occurs. It won't reveal itself, though, until you put the fabric in water. Then it will instantly turn blue!
So how do you make a print? Place objects on the fabric to block the light: anywhere the sunlight doesn't touch will remain white and leave a photographic impression on the fabric (this is called a photogram).To make prints of photographs, just print the photo onto a transparency (Photos must first be inverted into negative, just like with other traditional photographic processes) and place that on top of the fabric instead of an object. You can even make prints from drawings by first drawing on a transparency?the possibilities are endless! Exposure time depends on conditions, but is generally 3-10 minutes.
