A great group activity, fun and safe for kids 8 and over. Just add sun!
Jacquards high-quality cotton sateen fabric comes pre-sensitized for cyanotype and ready to use, making sun printing easier than ever before. Just pull the sheet out of the package, place objects on top, expose to light, rinse and dry and you'll have a rich, detailed print.
So how do you make a print? Place objects on the fabric to block the light: anywhere the sunlight doesn't touch will remain white and leave a photographic impression on the fabric (this is called a photogram).You can even make full-body prints by lying on top of the giant mural fabric for the duration of the exposure (careful not to move!). Exposure time depends on conditions, but is generally 3-10 minutes.
Included in the kit are some Film sheets for making negatives using the included film markers or an inkjet printer. Photos must first be inverted into negative, just like with other traditional photographic processes. To easily transform any image into a negative, visit www.JacquardCyanotype.com. Negatives may then be printed on to the film sheets or any other film media.
