Works On Fabric
My range of scarves has been created using several natural fabrics including banana fibre, milk, soy and cotton as well as the all time favourite, silk. Designs are mostly photograms of plants. Cyanotypes are photographs, not dyes and they require extra care in handling.
IMPORTANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS The image is permanent, but the blue colour will change to yellow if washed with phosphates, soda, borax or bleach. To preserve the original blue colour – hand wash using only a small amount of non-phosphate liquid soap. (Earth Choice Wool and Delicates wash recommended) Use just water if possible. Rinse thoroughly and dry flat in the shade. Not suitable for frequent washing. Blueprints can be ironed using a dry iron. Dry cleaning is NOT recommended.
