    Cyanotypes on Glass

    Is it possible?

    I've done plenty of Cyanotypes on various papers and love the process. I was wondering if anyone had ever produced a Cyanotype on glass plates; what would I need to make the solution stick to the glass? I Only have a short period of time to produce a working print and was wondering what primer / subbing would work best to 'stick' the solution to the surface.

    I, at first, thought this would be a simple case of using Albumen or Subbing Solution after cleaning the glass with alcohol (to remove grease.) After careful consideration I've lost hope in my ideas. Would I need to mix some sort of adhesive into the sensitizing solution? If so, what? Would I be able to wash the excess off afterwards if I did? What could I use that wouldn't 'harm' my chemistry? etc etc .

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Regards
    Kenz

    Welcome to APUG!

    Here is one earlier thread which discusses what you want to do: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum42/2...ype-glass.html

    I've only done cyanotypes on paper, so I can't be of further help, but I hope this helps you a bit.
