Cyanotype Store China Silk Scarves (100% 8mm Chiffon) are coated with Cyanotype solution which, when exposed to sunlight with objects or a negative placed on top, will yield the color of the scarf on a bluish background.
Size is approximately 9 inches by 54 inches. (Some shrinkage from the original 9 inch x 54 inch material has occurred in the coating & treating process.)
Simple to do. Just place your image or object on the Cyanotype Store silk scarf. Set it out in the sun for 10 - 15 minutes. Remove your design from Sunprint silk scarf and rinse in water until the water runs clear.
Can be pressed with a warm dry iron before printing to remove wrinkles.
Includes step-by-step instructions in English, French, German, Spanish & Japanese.
Product is coated both sides so you can print on either or both sides, then rinse with water.
Conforms to ASTM D4236 regulation stating that this product can be used safely as an "art material" or "craft material" for use by children and is Non-Toxic.
Special Note (Washing): Cyanotype material is very durable and is washable. If you do not want the image to change, make sure to use detergent without phosphates. Using detergent with phosphates will turn the image yellow.
Special Note (Toning): Use a phosphate detergent to change your blueprint to yellow, then use black tea to change your yellow print to a brown (sepia) print.
