Item Contents: 

25 sheets of 8.5” x 11” Nature Print Paper

Item Description: 

Beautiful, permanent, white on blue prints are made possible in a matter of minutes with Nature Print Paper and your creativity.  Our non-toxic, classroom tested paper has been a great source of fun and for all ages since 1977.

How It Works:

Simply select the subject of your print from a wide array of natural or manmade objects, place it on top of the paper, and expose it to sunlight, or a UV lamp, until the paper turns light blue in color (1-3 minutes depending on intensity of sunlight).  Once exposure is complete, submerge the paper in water to stop the exposure process, remove print from water and set aside to dry.  It’s that easy!

Tips & Tricks:

  • Want a deeper blue print?  Simply add a dash of hydrogen peroxide to the water before submerging your exposed paper.
  • Want to be able to use Nature Print but can’t make it outdoors?  Not a problem, use an artificial UV light source to substitute for natural sunlight.  Parental supervision is suggested when using electric powered UV light sources.
  • Beautiful freehand drawings are easier than ever with Nature Print Paper.  Dip a paintbrush or cotton swab in hydrogen peroxide and start applying it to the unexposed paper. This step should be done indoors away from sunlight.  Once you are happy with your creation, move your masterpiece outside into direct sunlight for normal exposure.  Once exposure is complete, submerge the paper in water just like normal.  The only thing holding you back is your imagination!
