The Cyanotype process:

is a photographic process, often used by architects to make blueprints and other images that are a beautiful deep indigo blue colour. Two chemicals, Ammonium iron (III) citrate and Potassium ferricyanide are mixed together and brushed on paper or fabric and dried in the dark. Once dried and exposed to light, the surface turns shades of indigo blue. Objects, or photographic images can be placed on top of the surface while being exposed to light. When the amount of light exposure is achieved then it is set by rinsing in a bath of water.
