Cut out the clip art shapes, find words from the thirty nine foam letters, and find cool objects from around the house like buttons, ribbons, flowers, and more. Set up all your objects, letters, and clippings into an arrangement over the sun paper. But dont put it in the sun just yet. Grab the clear acrylic sheet, write fun phrases and drawings on it with the dry erase markers, and then set it over your design to hold everything down. Now comes the science. Set your entire Sun Art design in the direct sunlight for one to five minutes. The longer you let it sit, the darker and more contrasting your image becomes. Carefully slide the sun paper from under your design and then quickly rinse it in cold water for about one minute. As it dries, your very own work of art shines through in contrasting shades of light and dark blue. Wow. Youre a true artist. Or a scientist? I cant tell. Now that youve figured out the process, start making more and more art. Experiment with designs, exposure times, rinsing techniques, and more. The creative possibilities are totally endless. With fifteen sheets of sun paper, three sheets of clip art, and thirty nine foam letters, you can really delve into creative experimentation with the SunArt Deluxe Kit.
