Matthew Bromhead

Arty Act: Cyanotype Drawing

Artist Matthew Bromhead invites you to create a cyanotype drawing. The cyanotype process is a simple, analogue process of exposing a drawing onto a sheet of coated, photosensitive paper (or other surface) via the sun. The unpredictable results during the development of this image allows a great range of experimentation.


Follow Matt’s guide to make your own drawing at home!

Cyanotype drawing instructions

You will need:

  • 1 x Cyanotype Solution: You can order these easily and inexpensively online, and the kit will come with two bottles (Solution A and B), or 1 bottle which has both solutions pre-mixed for you.
  • 1 x sheet of Arches Aquarelle paper.
  • 1 x Acetate sheet. Anything transparent really - this is what you will draw your image on.
  • 1 x Lumocolour pen or simple texta - anything that will draw onto an acetate sheet.
  • 1 x soft bristle brush and pair of latex gloves.
  • 1 x tray filled with water, either a baking tray or similar such container.
