More Sun Printing 2021

It continues to be hot and humid, so I got out and did some more sun printing. In this post I wanted to show you that you don’t have to use leaves or other botanicals or even stencils to sun print.

If you aren’t familiar with sun printing, check out this previous tutorial. I’m using Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow, my now go-to fabric paint for sun printing. For this post I used some items around the house as masks. This first one I used those bags that some melons are in. I painted the fabric and then added the mesh bags before taking to the sun.

Here is the finished piece.

I have lots of keys around the house. I thought they’d make great masks.

Here is the finished piece.

I was sure I was going to use these sticks someday. And the other day I did!

And the finished piece.

On this one I twirled the fabric around, and used clothes pins to hold it in place.

And the results.

But you don’t have to use anything. You can just manipulate the fabric with your hands, and then paint.

I added one color first.

And a couple more colors.

And the result.  The colors all blended together. I was quite happy with how this one turned out.

And here is another one.

Again, this was so much fun and it’s fast and easy. I always let my fabric dry 24 hours before I iron it. Now I need to use it! I’m linking this post to Off the Wall Friday. Check out the link for more inspiration!
