solar photo paper

Item No.: KG294

Here's how to make beautiful creations with solar photo paper in 7 steps:

  1. Collect cool objects for your artwork, such as flower buds or leaves
  2. Remove the photo paper from the black plastic bag (do this in the shade, because once it is outside it can already start to develop). Place the solar photo paper on a flat surface, such as a table or countertop.
  3. Place different (flat) objects on the paper. Be creative!
  4. Use a sheet of glass to cover your artwork with, for when it is windy.
  5. Place the photo paper with the objects (and transparent sheet) in the sunlight for 3 to 10 minutes. Preferably do this during a bright day, so the photo paper can absorb enough sunlight. If the sun is not so strong, leave your creation in the light a little longer.
  6. Remove the objects from the paper. You can now clearly see a difference in colour on the paper where your objects have been. Soak the paper in a bowl of water or rinse it under the tap, you will now see the colours reverse.
  7. Let the paper dry flat in the shade for best results. PS. In a bit more of a hurry? A hair dryer also works, but may wrinkle the paper slightly.
