Cyanotype paper, sometimes known as sun print paper, is a simple form of photographic paper that uses a two chemicals, ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide to create white images on a cyan blue background.
The cyanotype printing method was discovered in 1842 by the English scientist Sir John Herschel who used it to reproduce notes and diagrams. This is where the term 'blue print' is derived. You learn something new every day!
