Solar Photography Kit

Use the power of sunlight to produce rich blue prints of common objects on paper or fabric.

$14.95

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.
