Size:1-Pack The SunPrint Solar Paper lets you makes beautiful pictures by placing objects on the paper and exposing it to the sun. The paper undergoes a chemical change when exposed to sunlight. Save the print by soaking in water then drying. The Sunprint paper can be used for a creative, solar art project. With this paper you can also demonstrate UV blocking sunscreen by smearing sunscreen on plexiglass and exposing the paper to the sun. Use different strengths of sunscreen and see how the image has changed.
Sun prints with photosensitive paper are easy to make, even on a cloudy day. In a dimly lit room, we placed the photosensitive paper from the sun print kit on a cookie sheet and arranged a comb, a dime, a safety pin, Thomas the Tank Engine, and a leaf on top of the paper. We carried the tray outside to the porch and set it down in the sunlight. Five minutes later, the paper had lightened. We carried the tray back inside and placed the sun print paper in cold water in the sink. Four minutes later, we removed a beautiful sun print and placed it on a paper towel to dry.
