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.

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.

I liked the uniqueness of the product, but disappointed in the small size of the sheets and the limited quantity.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Solar Photography Kit:

      This solar photography kit is a very fun thing to do with kids. My granddaughter and I collected items from around the yard (leaves, rocks, twigs, flowers, etc) and placed them on the light blue paper in the sun. After 15 minutes we brought the paper inside and rinsed it under cold water till the paper turns a pretty darker and brighter blue and where the objects were turn white. It is a beautiful contrast. We then blot the paper and let it dry. These would make fun gifts for kids to give to parents, grandparents, etc.

          My art-loving aunt is a photographer and she also loves to knit. I bought her the fabric option so that she can combine both passions. She absolutely loves it and her creations are so cool!!!

          All uncommon gifts are fantastic. I did not know how beautiful the gift wrapping was. This gift is perfect for someone who likes photography but also likes things that are unique and interesting.

          I bought these to use as a science project with my 9 yr old twins. This is exactly what I expected and it was an easy way to learn new things while adding an artistic side to science. Love!

          Of all the Christmas gifts, this one got the most comments & discussion. This was bought for my 15 year old granddaughter whose major interest is art. She says it is great!
