Sunprint Kit

Sunprint paper is a medium as versatile as your imagination. Use it to make unique images, or for craft projects and scientific investigation.

$6.99

Product #: MKCT04

Sunprint kits capture images using only sun, water, and a bit of imagination. Place this light sensitive paper in the sun and you can capture the image of whatever you place on it. Wash with water to make the image permanent. Contains 12 4"x4" sheets.

Sun-based Science

Sunprint paper can be used for scientific sleuthing. Sensitivity to ultra-violet light lends sunprinting to sun-based investigations. It can also be used as a measuring tool for any other UV light source, or as a photographic medium to use in scientific experiments. Just how effective IS that sunscreen, anyhow? Test your SPF or chart the sun's progress acrost the sky.

 

Art with the Power of the Sun

Sunprinting is based on the cyanotype process, used by artists since the 19th century. Objects that eclipse the sun’s light (that's stuff you can't see thru, or completely opaque objects) 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 (essentially, print negatives from any printer.) Try layering, motion, and folding, crinkling or otherwise manipulating the paper itself for extra cool effects.

 

Hands-on Fun for ALL

Sunprinting is a great hands-on activity to do with classes, parties, camps and workshops. Sunprinting requires little explanation and artists young and old take to the process and quickly make it their own.
