Sun Prints, sometimes referred to as Nature Prints, are made using a light sensitive paper with a blue coloration. Sun Prints have a beautiful blue color and are quick and easy to make. You simply place objects on top of the paper and place your arrangement outside in the sunlight for 3-5 minutes (until the paper is light blue). Rinse the paper under cool water for one minute and then lay flat to dry. Very easy!
I made these Sailor Moon sun prints by printing images on transparency film and using those images as a sort of negative. I then sprinkled different sized salt on the transparency to get a sort of starry sky look.
