Comments about Nature Print Paper:
This is really fun to play with. I used direct sunlight through a window. I also used different timings of exposure from 2 minutes to 5 minutes. The longest exposure makes the darkest blue background, so you can adjust the time depending on the background color that you want. The instructions said wait until the paper turns light blue, but don't over expose the paper. You can judge the color change by comparing it to the blue on the package. It is similar to the color of the unexposed paper. When rinsing, use the minimum time to avoid paper curling as it dries. Blotting the paper also works to remove excess water.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fun project, great service!

I ordered a particular item for a project, as it was a great deal compared with similar companies. It also arrived very quickly. I am very happy with the service and the product!

I ordered this product to test it for an upcoming project for a very large group of families. I wanted to test it under blacklight since there is no way to ensure that we will have sunny weather on the day we've planned the project. It worked incredibly under the blacklight! The contrast and detail came out perfectly, and the instructions included with the paper were easy to follow. Will definitely be ordering more.

Great and fun kit
from Long Beach, CA
I bought a sun paper kit to try, and it worked very well. It was fun to do and the results were not only interesting, but great. I put ginkgo leaves on the paper, took it out in the sun and within 2 minutes or less, had a beautiful image that I was able to copy on my printer to make cards. It took so little time and effort with such good results that it was more than worth the reasonable price. I intend to make more cards and have fun doing it. I intend to buy more kits similar to this from Blick's.
Great for science or art!
from Tucson, AZ
The only thing that would make this better for classroom use is to include more of the see-thru presses. In the kit box. Other than that, my students were excited about this project and the results exceeded their expectations. Lots of ooohs and awes!
4 H camp fun
By Hood Container
from Waverly Tn
Purchased this product for a 4-H summer camp craft project the kids loved it. The kids picked up different leaves on a nature walk then made sun prints out of them. Everyone had a great time.
Worked well at day camp
By Cub Scouter
I have used other brands in the past and was a little unprepared for how quickly the paper developed. The paper worked great! Some of the kids wanted to add things to their photos and ended up exposing the entire sheet and were disappointed. Just be sure to tell them to have their picture exactly how they want it before exposing it to light. I strongly recommend making "folders" with windows to lay out their project on and then sliding one sheet of sun paper under the window before laying it in the light.
Love to use...
By art teach
Great product to use either as an introduction to photography or for a variety of early elementary art projects.
By Iowa Naturalist
Obviously, this product works best in full sun. Unfortunately, we needed to use it indoors (for a classroom project) and didn't always get the best results with the low sun angle through the window and the clouds moving in. But, when the sun was shining brightly through the windows, it worked great! The kids were amazed and many said that it was their favorite art project!
