Cyanotype is a 19th century photographic method of printing, producing a beautiful cyan-blue print. Also known as a ‘blue print’ or ‘sun print’. Traditionally the process was used as a simple way to reproduce photographs, maps, and technical drawings.
•Fitting: E27, with B22 reducer. (Will fit EU and UK lamp holders)
•Each one is individually printed by me, Claire in Bristol
•Each lampshade is unique and are individually cyanotype printed so slight variations may occur
•Despite being a light sensitive process, once the print is fixed they are very light fast and should not fade. I have one in a south facing window for over a year and it's still vibrant blue.
•These can only be printed in summer, once they’re gone they’re gone until next year!
