Cyanotype art is beautiful in mass and I would love to try this one day for a gallery or grouping just not sure where yet.  Note to self, must find a place.

Or cut to the chase and print them from here.  Have you tried this before?


  1. when i was a kid i had one of those sun print kits that made images like that. wish i had kept it! maybe i need to buy one again to do with my kids.

  2. So pretty! This is one of those projects I've always wanted to do with the kids, but have never bought the paper to do it. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. I love that first image where the prints are floating in the frame, especially hung in that white/off white hallway. Stunning as a grouping!

  4. I've been wanting to do this for some time now. It's saved as one of my 'Must do projects'. Think they make a real impact!! Have a great weekend, Rene!

  5. When my girls were little, we bought the sun-sensitive paper and made these! I love the idea of doing it using spray paint, tho ... instant gratification is the best kind, IMO.

    This weekend's projects are all geared toward final preparations for our daughter's wedding in two weeks. We have some tweaking to do on our pavilion (ceremony site), irrigation tubing to finish (so we can mulch the new bed around the pavilion), and tons of shopping to finish. It sounds hectic, but it's really a lot of fun!

  6. Looks like so much fun, Rene.
    I am refinishing a console of my Mother's this weekend.
    I am at the beach this week, so I will be doing that as soon as I can. Have already stripped it, with is the worst part for me.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. These are the most beautiful color of blue...I'll have to try it!

  8. I am meeting my friend
    Kathleen in Illinois for a
    barn sale and girl's weekend!
    She still mentions you fondly : )
    ' Lots of bloggers will be at
    this sale; fun stuff! Love these
    prints. I may have to coax my
    daughter into making some.
    Have a great weekend, Rene!

  9. SOOO cool!! What a great idea for DIY art. I'm packaging raffle items for our local twins club fundraiser this weekend. I'm doing a nautical theme, and goodness, it is taking forever. I need to get back to that now. Have fun looking through all of your great Kayce Hughes items!

  10. These are very cool,I have never done these or really even seen them before.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be wrapping up sports things this weekend so hopefully I am free after this weekend for a while. :)

  11. I love that blue!
    I'm figuring out how to DIY the Juju Hat this weekend... thankfully it's a long weekend up here!

  12. These are beautiful Rene. Wishing you a lovely week, Nicolex
