337. Solar Skull

Sun Print (8in x 8in [20cm x 20cm]). Thanks to my friend Coryndon who gave me this Sunprint kit several months ago (I believe my friend Carra gave me some of this paper later as well). I arranged an assortment of beads (from my friend Mimi) directly on 4 sheets of the light sensitive paper and then exposed it to the sun for a few minutes. I was actually adjusting the beads while it exposed, thus creating the more ghostly appearance. This was definitely one of those educational toys that were popular when I was young, and I remember getting a few of these kits as gifts over the years, though I never did anything this complex with them.

I'd just like to be the first one to congratulate skulladay on winning the people's voice award for a personal website at the webby awards 2008!! WOOT!! And I'm happy to hear that you'll be staying around after the beginning of June. I'll be sure to send in photos of all my skull projects. Oh, never been exposed to this craft before, but I like it. I'll have to look for it here in Canada.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to be accepted as a member. Thank You Skull master for putting an end to one of them and finally opening a door for me to join their group.

Now has anyone found my glitter and drain pipe tuba?

Nice -- I have always thought for years that sunprints were far too underrated... But, then again, I suppose I'm biased... :)
