BOOM Activity: Cyanotype Experience

Visitors will make a cyanotype, or sunprint, using found objects or personal objects. A cyanotype is an historical photographic process in which images are captured onto light sensitive paper using simply the sunlight. The resulting image yields a brilliant blue, or cyan, color due to the nature of the chemistry.
