Creating Images with the Sun
In this activity, we will learn how to capture summer by using the sun to create cyanotype images. We will arrange foliage and other material on cyanotype paper before going outside and exposing them to the sun. After developing the cyanotypes, we will push our creativity by making additional marks on the paper.
