Crafty: Sun sensitive paper

The Ladies Activity Club went to the Museum of Modern Art last night. We spent most of our time laughing about some of the more obscure pieces (blank canvases and fake whale blubber). But in the photography wing, I was inspired!

SF MOMA had a few Cyanotype photos of ferns in their series on modern photographic techniques. Remember cyanotypes? The blue light sensitive paper you used in elementary school?

I am dying to make a few of these to hang in the apartment. Maybe a series with different herbs to put up in the kitchen? The paper is pretty cheap too! You can buy 15 sheets for only $5 online from NaturePrintPaper.com.

It's a club I started a year ago. We now have about 25 members and meet once a month. You are so invited to the August party! Details TBD.
