Art with the Power of the Sun
Sunprint Kits are based on the cyanotype process, which has been used by artists since its development in the 19th century. Objects that eclipse the sun’s light will show up in white, with the rest of the paper turning a vibrant Prussian Blue. Gradients between these two ends are easy to achieve. Make prints of physical objects or transfer digital images via transparency sheet. Layering techniques, motion, and manipulation of the paper itself are all implements in the Sunprint Kit user’s toolbox.
Sunprints encourage an interest in the photographic process using only sun, water, and a bit of imagination.
Place a fern, flower, or other object on the special paper and set it in the sun briefly. Then rinse the paper in water and watch as a beautiful long-lasting image appears!
