Cyanotypes utilise the UV rays from the sun and iron salt solutions rather than silver salt solutions of early photographic processes A sensitiser solution is brushed evenly over paper or other porous surfaces. As the sensitiser chemicals react to light when exposed, the coating process takes place in dim light. These chemicals are then exposed to UV light such as sunlight, or a UV lamp, which creates ferric ferrocyanide, also known as Prussian Blue. The last step in the process is a water rinse to wash away the sensitiser solution, and the blue darkens as the print dries to reveal the final product.
