Of all the non-silver printing processes that I got to try at ASU, cyanotype was the easiest to do and I think maybe you could do it at home pretty easily, you wouldn't need a school lab. The coolest part? You usesunlightto expose your paper!
I used polaroid positive/negative film that I exposed in a pinhole camera, cuz you kinda need a larger negative for this process, so now I'm thinking maybe this wouldn't be so easy to do, since that process itself was kinda difficult and polaroid is discontinuing their analog products.....okay so I just was trying to see if you could still buy this film and somebody was selling a box of 50 (that's expired) for $255 on ebay. Ha! Wish I had crazy money like that to spend! So, anyways, the cyanotype process was not that hard once I ordered the chemicals, but I think getting a big negative would be the hard part since it would mean renting a large format camera....except now that I think about it even more, the worse part about large format film cameras was getting the exposure half-way decent, and now I would just use my digital camera to figure out exposure so.... LONG . STORY . SHORT : some far off day when I have free time (& money!), I would try this process again!
