We'll make some postcards and fabric prints using cyanotype, with plants and other objects we have in hand. This photographic printing technique was invented in the 19th century. It creates images in hues of blue using a sensitizer solution on paper and with the precious help of sunlight.

NOTE: Cyanotype can only be made with sunlight, so this activity is weather dependent. Cyanotype products can stain clothes.
