Cyanotypes - super easy photo prints at home.

Step 2: Paper

A cyanotype can be printed on almost any paper, cloth, or even tile. I used 100% cotton water-color paper from an art paper store. It was not fancy (about 2 euro for a huge sheet), nor thick (~170 lbs?). Some people are more careful about paper selection. For other's views, check out the Alternative Photography forum here .

Brush, spray, or soak the sensitizer into the paper.

Leave the paper to dry, or speed it up with a hairdryer set to low.
