Sun Print Painting

8:00 PM



This was as much a science project as an art project! I wanted to show the girls how sun screen works as well as experiment with sun prints.



I started by having the kids paint pictures on construction paper with sun screen. The only requirement I gave them was that they could not fill the entire page since then there would be nothing to see!



Next we laid them out in the sun. Thanks to the wind we got to experiment with classic sun printing; basically we had to block some of the paper with things to weigh them down!


After letting the dry in the sun a few hours this is what we got. You can see the sun screen kept the area under it darker, but the actually color still faded. The areas where we completely blocked the sun with objects stayed their same bright color! Obviously cover is a better option then sun screen, but sun screen is still better then nothing!




Of course now I want to try different types of sunscreen to see if any work better then the others!
