{sun prints}

I found my sun print kit a few days ago, as I was cleaning out some drawers (which I have to do periodically so they can close! I tend to hold onto things...). I bought it about 4 years ago at the Getty and I was glad to see the paper was still good! You can buy the kits here for fairly cheap! It comes with 12 sheets- perfect for making a calendar this this one!
This was my little experiment...
