The photographic process of making a sun print, or cyanotype, uses chemicals and the sun to create beautiful prints. Here I will show you how you can get similar results using just acrylic paint!
Do this activity on a bright, calm day—the more sun, the better. When choosing your natural materials for printing, try to find leaves and flowers that feature interesting patterns and textures. You will get the best results from plants with softer leaves and flowers with defined petals.
