Cyanotype Set by Jacquard

This Cyanotype Set by Jacquard is a component set for photographic blueprints on paper and fabric. Cyanotype is the “original” sun printing process, and one of the earliest photographic techniques. Discovered in 1842, it is distinctive for producing rich, Prussian blue monochromatic prints. Cyanotype was popular well into the 20th century as an inexpensive method for reproducing photographs, documents, maps and plans. Hence the enduring architectural term “blueprint”. Also, famously, for making impressions of biological specimens in the field “photograms”.

Harness the power of the sun to make detailed prints from virtually any object that casts a shadow: tools, toys, plants, leaves, stones, sand, string, as well as lace, and more. Simply place the object on the sensitized cyanotype surface and expose it to sunlight (UV). Try using a digitally printed photographic negative (an inverted black and white photo inkjet printed onto a transparency*) instead of an object to create full resolution photographs on paper or fabric.

Great for photographers, mixed media artists, printmakers, quilters, kids and more. The cyanotype process is easy, forgiving, quick, magical and fun. Capture the nuance of every shadow—a fun group activity for any age!

2—0.8 oz/22.68 g bottles (1 each of the following): (also available separately)


Any natural fiber or porous surface, including cotton, linen, silk, canvas, paper, and wood as well as leather.
