Making prints with sun-sensitive paper is a great way to pay attention to the interesting shapes found in nature. Start by collecting a variety of pretty weeds (yes, weeds) and flowers. In the shade, arrange them on your special paper.
Move paper into the sun for a couple minutes.
Remove the items from the paper and check out the results. Briefly submerge your print in a pan of water. Like magic the dark areas become light and the light areas become dark. (Not pictured) More detailed instructions come with the paper.
