Shine a light on a new way to print! Watch our Prints du Soleil Facebook Live demo on 7/7 at 6 p.m. CST. We’ll show you how to create a stand-out Heliographic print using paper shapes, vibrant watercolors, and sunshine. Find out how varying areas of exposure to the light create stunning patterns.

Instructions

  1. Wrap fabric around the chipboard and tape it to the back. If using paper, tape the edges to the chipboard.
  2. Saturate the surface with liquid watercolors.
  3. Place cutout shapes onto the painted surface.
  4. Set outside or under an artificial light source to dry.
  5. Remove the paper shapes when the surface is completely dry to reveal your print.
