What is SunArt Paper? SunArt Paper is special sun sensitive paper that you can use to create prints by leaving it out in the sun for a few minutes. Basically you place masks or objects on top of your paper, place it outside for about 5 minutes, rinse it and then let it dry. The paper will turn a dark blue with your print being a lighter color.

Have you ever used SunArt Paper? They also make a solution you can apply to fabric and get the same effect.
