Re: facial tanners for UV light?

Another plan for building a point source UV light box is here

at the printmaking site of Henrik Boegh 

http://www.artbag.dk/www-grafisk-eksperimentarium-dk/uk/GrafiskEksperimentarium.html. If the above UV box link does not work, visit the site and go to DO IT YOURSELF to find the UV Exposure Box for the plan.

Though sun is annually consistent, it rains a lot here, I wouldn't mind a copy as well.  I haven't been able to find good info on the subject.  Since my move, I'm having to completely rethink my process, and it would be nice to be able to work around the clock.
