As a family find out how to make a stunning blue and white image using the power of the sun!

Sunprints or ‘cyanotypes’ as they are sometimes known are one of the oldest forms of photography. Use a specially coated paper, lay some cool objects on top and expose it to the rays of the sun. You can use plants, objects, stencils, even body parts (let’s just use our hands!) to make patterns. Then, you just need to rinse it in water, like magic your picture will appear, but be warned, it’s mesmerising and totally addictive!
