Chemicals for creating cyanotype blue prints on fabric and paper. Includes 200g ferric ammonium citrate and 100g potassium ferricyanide and instructions.
The chemical names sound alarming but are fairly common place and have no significant adverse effects on us or the environment. The main iron salt, ferric ammonium citrate, is used as a food additive (potential hazards are listed in the pack) while the other, potassium ferricyanide, sounds nasty but is only likely to cause problems if mixed with strong acids. The instructions include advice on safe use.
Our blog post Cyanotype Blue Printing includes a recipe for using these chemicals for creating cyanotype prints.
Chemicals should be handled with care and sensible precautions should be taken.
