The Blueprint For Creativity

Based on the cyanotype process pioneered by Anna Atkins (the first female photographer) in 1842, Sunography is a fun and rewarding introduction to printmaking, using a minimum of equipment and materials. Place any object or transparency on the Sunography paper, expose to sunlight, and rinse with water to produce your own richly blue prints. Use old photo negatives, x-rays, bits of lace, leaves, and everyday objects to compose an endless variety of images. The heavyweight cotton paper or fabric may be exposed on both sides, and is suitable for hand coloring, painting, or stitching to make your prints even more unique. Made in the USA.

Pros

  • Beautiful Deep Blue
  • Best Quality Paper

Cons

    Best Uses

    • High School Classroom

    Comments about UncommonGoods Solar Photography Kit:

    The thick quality paper - it's similar to nice heavy watercolor paper - makes this an age appropriate kit for my high school photo class. I've done searching and tried others, but they have al been too flimsy for serious photography student. I'm really happy with this product.

    My sister is into a lot of artsy stuff, and she absolutely loved this! She was also excited to see that this was based on the process pioneered by the first female photographer!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Solar Photography Kit:

        I ordered this as a gift because I thought it would be a unique gift. However when it arrived, the packaging was only a cardboard sleeve. It was very small. For some reason I was expecting something a little bit bigger. My brother still loved it, but I thought it looked small under the tree.
