NIGHT 326 – THE STORY OF ALI SHAR AND ZUMURRUD

Making the sun with the sun with my son

Sun in sunprints
Cyanotype
Blueprints in the sunshine ☀️ 🌞
Teaching 日 and 太阳 (‘sun’) made by the sun itself
Do cyanotypes with children
They have fun and you have fun too

Read this brilliant book by Fiona Robinson, The Bluest of Blues

(You buy the dangerous chemicals online, mix and apply onto 300gsm cold-pressed watercolour paper separately in dark room; once dried and safe you get kid to do placements of pre-gathered objects on the paper and expose to full strong sunshine; excitedly wait until colour change c.5 mins and then wash off under tap until blue and white prints appear then let dry)
