SunArt Paper Kit
Create art with solar energy
- Light sensitive paper reacts to sun exposure
- Kit contains materials for 15 pieces of art
- You can even create art from old film negatives!
Creating art with the sun is easy-peasy! You just strip off your shirt, write something on your chest in sunscreen, and then go take a nap at high noon. When you awaken, you'll be burning hot and possibly peeling and blistering, but you'll have your message written clearly in whatever your natural skin color was before this great idea occurred to you.
Sounds painful? Why not grab a SunArt Paper Kit instead? SunArt uses the energy of the sun to create beautiful shadow print artwork. Simply select the items you'd like to use in your artwork, put them on the SunArt paper, cover them with the acrylic sheet, and expose them to the sun. In just a few minutes, the magic will happen. Rinse the sheet with cold water and you'll see your shadow print artwork. For more advanced artists, you can expose old film negatives to the sun for several hours and transfer them to a piece of SunArt paper!
