Solar Paper

The Solar Paper Pack contains 25 sheets of 8x10 inch light sensitive blueprint paper. Cheap, safe, very simple and fun to use, it doesn’t require any chemicals or darkroom conditions. All you need to do is take a sheet of paper out of the pack and arrange a composition of objects or negatives onto your paper. Interesting shapes or semi-translucent objects will give a nice effect; Leaves, grass, flowers, glass objects, feathers, jewellery, paper cutouts, fabrics, lace will all will work well.

After exposing the print in the sunshine for a few minutes, wash it in tapwater to see a wonderful white-on-blue image emerge.

Solar Paper is the perfect education tool that allows children to learn about composition, negative/positive and the physics of light, all in a fun, safe and playful way.
