Sunprint Kits are a fun and easy way to make photographic prints using nature. Requiring only sunlight, water and imagination, this activity is the perfect way to explore photography and introduce the concept of chemical change.
Get creative by choosing leaves, flowers or everyday objects with interesting textures and simply place them on top of the special sunprint paper. After only a few minutes of sun exposure, your object will leave a white print, while the rest of the paper turns a vivid shade of blue. Simply rinse the paper with water to set the image and complete your artwork.
Sunprinting is based on the cyanotype (or ‘blueprint’) process, which has been used by artists since the 19th Century. With a magical result sure to inspire adults and children alike, Sunprint Kits combine science and art into one simple, creative activity.
