Solar prints are fun for kids and adults

Sep 30, 2009

Solar prints (also called sun prints) are easy to do and inexpensive.  I picked up a package at the local toy store and spent an hour with my daughter one afternoon creating different images from found objects in our yard.  Here are three prints that we created together:

The exosure time is only a few minutes, and all you need to "fix" the image permenantly is a pan of water.  You can also create solar prints from original drawings on tracing paper.  I'll have to play around with this idea.

love, love, love it! I forgot we had solar print paper. I'm going to have to crack that out and play with the kids.
