Just add sunshine and water and see what develops! Use natural or man-made objects to make beautiful and unique prints. Use your SunArt Paper Kit outdoors on a sunny or an overcast day or even in a sunny window. All kits come with 15 sheets of SunArt Paper.

Cyanotypes are photographs sometimes known as blueprints, sunprints or sunlight prints. a photogram is a photographic image made without the use of a camera by placing objects on light-sensitized paper. Also called shadow prints or "Rayograph", after the artist Man Ray. Cyanotype paper is a light-sensitive coated paper.

Step 1
Select item(s) such as leaves, flowers or objects found around the house. Arrange a composition that will fit the size of the paper. You can even use negatives but it can take up to 2 hours for exposure.

Step 2
Assemble in this order:
  • Surface or cardboard for the bottom
  • SunArt Paper - blue side up (keep away from direct sunlight)
  • Chosen item(s)
  • Acrylic sheet which holds items in place
    (Peel protective coating from acrylic sheet before use)

    Step 3
    Expose to the sunlight until SunArt Paper turns a very light blue. Approximately 1-5 minutes, depending on sunlight. Stay away from shadows.

    Step 4
    Once the SunArt Paper has turned a very light blue, carefully slide the paper out from backing board and your objects. Quickly rinse the SunArt Paper with water for about one minute. The image will turn lighter during this process. To obtain darker, more intense blue tones, simply add a few drops of lemon juice to a tray of water. Use the tray to rinse your exposed SunArt Paper.

    Step 5
    Place the rinsed SunArt Paper on a flat surface or paper towels to dry. See your beautiful solar photograph darken to a richer blue as the SunArt Paper dries. To flatten, simply place the completely dried sheet under a book for 1-2 days. Do not try to flatten your print before it is completly dry.

    Use only as directed. Adult supervision is recommended.

    Sun Art Paper
    Posted 7/5/2014

    My 9 year old daughter was thrilled when she saw this product in your store. She used it at school for an art project and thought it was so cool! I have to agree...it not only inspires creativity, but incorporates scientific concepts as well.

    Review for SunArt Paper Kit - 5 x 7 inches
    Posted 4/28/2014

    I bought two different sizes of this item. My son loves looking for different things outside to transfer onto this paper. We received this item right after my sons school trip to the local science center. It is intriguing and exciting watching the entire process take place.

    Good for children interested in the concepts and science of photography. Takes some adult involvement for some children but all in all a great artistic minded project.
