Who would like to do a Cyanotype workshop?

Cyanotype is a style of monochrome contact printing that has been around for ~150 years. It results in a distinct blue print that you expose in the sunlight and "develop" in water.

In this modern age of the computer-a-tron, we can make a negative digitally and print it on transparency paper. Digital photographers can, therefore, make these distinctive prints without needing access to any darkroom equipment.

Stuff We''ll Need
Chemicals
Enough watercolor paper for the group
Transparency paper
Two 8x10 sheets of glass per person
A location
Water
Time

I have a laser printer, so I will gladly print our contact negatives. You will have to BYO Glass.

This stuff costs some money, but not a lot. If there are enough folks interested, I'll price it out and see what the cost per person would be. It shouldn't be more than a couple bucks, and I would totally cover it myself if I wasn't dirt poor.

Please respond to this thread to express your interest.

Here are some cyanotype examples:

Plus the 6-14 inches of snow projected with at the very least no sun showing puts a damper on this event, right?

I'm fine with trying the 17th or 18th.

Karl,

You never sent me an image, anyway. You would've only been watching.

Where we're at:

If you haven't guessed, we're not going this weekend. I still haven't been able to arrange all the ducks properly.

The good news is: through some research I have determined how to do really speedy Cyanotypes -- the one below was exposed in 7 minutes, which is way more do-able than the 2 or 3 hours of my first efforts.

The bad news: my printer is no good for printing negatives. There are visible printer lines on the negative. I will need someone to donate some printer to do up this workshop.
