I bought a pack to do with the kids over the holidays and they really enjoyed it. Especially searching around the house for suitable objects to use. We found the flat items like the dried flowers worked best, as we could place some clear acetate over them, giving a really crisp edge.
You will need - sun print paper, acetate or a sheet of plastic or glass, a bowl of water and some interesting objects to print
▲ First gather together all your chosen items, some acetate or a piece of glass to keep down flat or light objects and a bowl of water.
▲ Next arrange your items on to the sun print paper. You will need to either do this quickly, or somewhere the sun's light cannot reach the paper, which is what I did. Apply the plastic sheet or acetate over the objects.
▲ Once all the items are in place, you will need to place the paper in direct sun light for a few minutes (or following manufacturers instructions) until the paper is exposed.
▲ Finally remove all the objects from the paper and submerge into cool water for a couple of minutes. The blue will turn to white, and the white to blue. Lay the paper flat to dry.
I just love how they turned out, I think they'd look great put in some frames. It was such a simple and no-mess project. I'd love to do this again in the Autumn too, with a collection of different shaped leaves or seed pods.
