Where can I buy blueprint paper? Answered

I am looking for blueprint paper, the kind that is just solid blue, no lines or graphs. Like the kind they use on Myth Busters.

"Blueprint" is a photographic process - the "blue" is the result of developing the paper. Otherwise, buy blue paper in an office supplies store.

its an ammonia based chemical process to print the blue. Mythbusters just use plain blue paper in large rolls with white wax pencil or opaque sharpie.

Actually "blue Line" on white paper is developed by ammonia vapor and "blue print" with white lines is developed by peroxide vapors. At least in the systems that I've owned.

I had a friend in college many years ago who came up with a very original idea for the use of the paper. He talked his girl friend into laying nude on the paper and then he ran the exposure light around her and made nude silhouette's.
I got to see the finished results but she insisted that the "process" remain secret.

I did this also. I was taking a photography class in college and for a project I soaked a white sheet in blueprint chemical and had our model lay on the sheet. The sheet was developed in peroxide. My instructor wasn't too impressed since it was "just" a big contact print. I used that sheet as a wall hanging for several years after that and it eventually faded almost away.
