Video tutorial inspiration visit my art tutorials on YouTube :
Making prints is fun and easy simply take your kit to a dimly lit space, remove one sheet from your kit and sit it on top of a sturdy surface place the stencils & plants you wish to print on top of the treated paper place your cellphone bag to hold plants in place and use a clothes peg to secure your layers.
Or alternatively substitute the cellophane bag with a piece of clean glass from a old picture frame. ( this works well because the weight helps the plants to contact the paper making for sharper prints )
Parental supervision advised here.
Now you are ready to expose your paper to solar rays , the sun is a perfect source for this, expose for 5-20 minutes or until your paper turns beige the longer the exposure the deeper the blue will develop in the water stage. Patience is key.
After exposing in the sunshine cover and carefully carry your set back to your dimly lit space to remove objects , rinse your paper in cold running water making sure not to rub the paper. Pat dry and allow 24 hrs to develop to its full colour depth of beautiful blue.
Optional : fast track this step with a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in developing water to speed up the oxidisation.
