This episode gets off to a weird start because someone *cough, cough, Katie, cough, cough* “lost” the first few minutes of the show. Thankfully the weird overcast morning turned into another scorcher here in Portland and The Gals were able to do some Sun Prints and record this episode for you. They had a blast as usual. We think you will too.
You can find out more about Sun Print papers and where you can buy them by visiting the Sunprint website.
And since recording this episode we found out about an amazing product that allows you to do Sun Printing on fabric. Inkodye by Lumi can be found on the Inkodye website. We are planning on playing with this stuff and doing an episode in the future because it is AWESOME. (This actually comes up in our next episode but since it applies here too we wanted to share it)

Loni and Katie gather some neato things to make sun prints of on Tuesday morning and got to it. They really had a great time experimenting with this! Sun Prints are super cool!
Here are some of the things they set out to make prints of.
This is what the paper looks like after it has process in the sun (for about five or ten minutes) and then after the prints are rinsed in water.
The papers get a little wrinkly as they dry but Katie was able to iron these out just fine; it didn’t change the prints in any way so know that you can do that. Here are there awesome prints, some of which turned out much cooler than others.
