• FORMULARY NEW CYANOTYPE KIT was formulated by Dr. Michael Ware. The formula was published in the Jan/Feb. 1997 issue of Photo Techniques. According to Dr. Ware, The "New" Cyanotype process uses a single sensitizer solution, having a long shelf life, to make prints of an excellent stable blue color and a long tonal response. And with a speed much faster than the traditional process." It also loses little, if any, blue color in the final wash water, and is much more suited to a greater variety of papers.
• This kit will produce approximately 50 8 x 10 prints if the sensitizer is applied with a glass coating rod, makes 100 ml (3 1/3 oz.) of solution.

I'm a quilter, not a photographer, and in a quilting magazine there was a project that asked for a cyanotype kit. I ordered it and once it arrived, I found that I would have needed to buy certain basic supplies to use it. Photography supplies. I contacted your company and you graciously allowed me to return it as I had not opened any of the materials. Thank you.
I am a photography student in Minnesota. Last spring I was taking a traditional printing alternative processes class. I decided to try cyanotypes. Makes quite a few prints. I used a heavy watercolor paper that added some beautiful texture. Mixing the chemicals was really easy, and the directions were very clear and easy to follow. The mixture makes a beautiful, brighter blue tone! I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in cyanotypes and the process.
was not explicitly clear about the state of sensitizer in product description, which wasn't as scary as the lack of caution or considerations for the hazards of mixing chemicals in solution's directions.
I think if you have the time to work with the product, your results will be great. I do want to warn you however that there are not enough safety warnings listed in the instructions. Becasue even though I was as careful with the chemicals as I could be I still ended up being hospitalized for Cyanide poisoning!!!!!!!
