Gilded Sun Prints

Use the sun to turn a favorite piece of jewelry, leaves from a nature walk, or a collage of random items into a piece of elegant art.


1. Gather your items (preferably flat with interesting silhouettes) and arrange them on a sheet of Nature Print Paper. Expose the paper to sunlight for two minutes until it turns pale blue. Remove the items, and soak the paper in water for one minute. Lay flat to dry.


2. Pin the four corners of the print to a piece of cardboard. Use Krylon Leafing Pens to add metallic patterns, shapes, and accents.


3. Using acid-free tape, attach the print to the back of a white pre-cut mat. Slide the mat and print into a Blick Metal Gallery Frame and hang.
