Some sun painting


This is done on white fabric with  Pebeo Setacolor Soleil paint.  I put a quilting grid stencil over top of the painted fabric and then put it out in the sun.  The object on the right was a potato masher.

The other 2 pieces I’ve brought in from outside didn’t print as well.  Well, one of them had sprinkles of salt on it, and the salt didn’t do much.  I didn’t have any rock salt, which would have worked better.  Even without any printing showing up, the fabric is much prettier than when it started….
I’ve got a piece of Tyvek out there still, plus some other pieces.  Even if they don’t turn out all that great, it’s definitely given me some ideas for future experimentation!

    Hi Suzanne, I like the sun print but I really love the writing on fabric. That’s one of my favorite techniques and I’ve meant to try it for a while. It always looks so wonderfully antique even if it’s not. I must try this soon. It’s so appealing when Deborah Boschert uses it-I can’t wait to see what you do with yours. Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comment. I’m appreciating the weather as well.

    I have seen some wonderful sun painting using leaves. Yours turned out well. I’d like to try it when the weather here gets a bit warmer.
