Or use photo paper for the pinhole cameras and not worry about reversing the tonalities - there's a Chinese pinhole artist who sells large paper pinhole negatives to museums for as much as $35,000. No reason they have to be printed as positives.You mean use the paper from the pinhole as the final print?
But again, you can't insert photo paper in daylight, can you? I guess you could use one of those black bags...tho it's tough with a bunch of squirming kids. But maybe set up a darktent... I bet someone has made one. Maybe a dark cloth over somekind of camping tent for one. (How big is a "pup tent" or don't they do them anymore?)
For cyanotype, I would just use found objects: leaves, hands, snakes, etc. and not worry about negatives.She's done that a lot and gets some great effects... but this time has something else (possibly impossible) in mind...
