This process involves two chemicals as well as a cyanotype photographic paper. The two chemicals that you would be using (assuming that you are experimenting at home) are ammonium iron(III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide. It does not require any development or fixing. The only thing you would be busy with is “washing”.
