Place any object or transparency on the sunography fabric. Expose in bright sunlight, and rinse with water to reveal a rich blue print over assorted colours of fabric. Sunography fabric is 100% cotton, and light sensitive on both sides to make two sided prints. The superior quality of sunography fabric produces finely detailed prints. The prints can also be toned yellow or sepia using rinses with common household liquids.
Sunography fabric is a great platform for creativity. Use old photo negatives, x-rays, bits of lace, leaves, printed transparencies or even household objects to compose designs. Sunlight sensitive material (the cyanotype) was a forerunner of modern photographic processes. This type of print dates back to 1842 and was popularized by Anna Atkins, one of the first female photographers.
