Sunprints are made with heliographic paints. An object is set on a sheet of paper or fabric painted with special paints and exposed to sunlight. The sunlight darkens the exposed areas, and the area of the fabric underneath it turns white. The light sensitive chemical chemically reacts when exposed to sunlight, and the paints darken, while the covered areas turn white.
Auras are believed to be electromagnetic energy fields that surround every living thing. These energy fields permeate through the body at various densities, extending out approximately 2 to 3 feet in an oval shape. Those who can see auras believe the colors are representative of an individual's thoughts and emotions, or are an indication of the health and well-being of that person. By performing exercises to see auras, it is believed, an individual can learn to recognize and manipulate energy fields to obtain better health and stability.
Patina, the age-old tarnish that gives the Statue of Liberty, some old rooftops, and household antiques their dull green appearance is often coveted by collectors as a sign of the age and rarity of an object. Attempting to remove patina from an old object, like you might attempt to remove gray hairs from your hair, is seen by many collectors as devaluing the work. While adding an untimely patina to your brass may not increase its cash value, it can give it the look of a significantly more expensive antique.
