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.
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.
Assemble in this order:
Surface or cardboard for the bottom
SunArt Paper - blue side up (keep away from direct sunlight)
Acrylic sheet which holds items in place
(Peel protective coating from acrylic sheet before use)
Expose to the sunlight until SunArt Paper turns a very light blue. Approximately 1-5 minutes, depending on sunlight. Stay away from shadows.
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.
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.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
Sun art was bought for a 6 year old girl, and she wanted to use it immediately on an unfortunately rainy day. The next day had to do; so, she learned a lesson in delayed gratification, too!
Sun Art is "easy creativity", letting the child use her or his imagination for the entire design. At 6 years old, however, the child did require some assistance, and she will run out of the special paper soon.
We'll be buying more in the near future.
