Each color offers excellent permanency, is trusted by gallery and student artists alike, and has a lightfastness comparable to the finest materials available. Join us on Namta Connect for a product demo of Tomorrow's Artist Acrylics and learn how you can create with a conscience.

Sun printing 101: Introduction with Jacquard’s NEW Cyanotype Kit

When: Thursday, June 27 at 3:00 pm ET
Speakers: Dylan Freitas-D'Louhy with Jacquard

Join Jacquard on Namta Connect as they walk you through the NEW Cyanotype kit! Jacquard’s Cyanotype Kit makes sun printing easier than ever and includes everything you need to get started. The chemistry comes pre-measured in lightproof black bottles. Simply fill each bottle with water to create Stock Solutions A & B, and then mix the two in equal parts to create the cyanotype sensitizer. Coat the included Hahnemühle Platinum Rag Fine Art Paper with the sensitizer and, once dry, create prints by exposing to sunlight or UV (10-20 minutes, depending on conditions), using the included glass printing frame and objects or a film negative to create an image. After exposure, prints are processed in a tray of cool water and allowed to air dry. The kit comes with enough material to make at least 12 (8.5x11in/ 21.59 x 27.94cm) prints. Multi-lingual packaging is compliant in 15+ countries.
