Teen Take-and-Make: Cyanotypes

Ages 10 to 18 years

Pick up a cyanotype kit in the Decatur Library YA section and make a sun print at home!

The cyanotype is one of the oldest processes in the history of photography. The cyanotype process creates blue prints, usually with the outlines of plants or other objects in white. Take home a kit to learn about the history of cyanotypes and how to make your own at home! All you need is water and sunlight.

Kits are available in the Young Adult section of the Decatur Library while supplies last. Kits cannot be shipped to other branches.
