Here Comes the Sun . . .

Printmaking using the Sun to create one of a kind cloth.
This is my first attempt at this type of printmaking. I wet the fabric first, painted it with Setacolor paints mixing as I wanted special colors. I only had Yellow , Fuchsia, Turquoise that I mixed all color from. It was an experiment to know how much I wanted to dilute the colors or not.
So wet, the cloth, paint it with color, arrange objects to be printed and then let the cloth sit in the sun for an hour or until dry. I hope to try again tomorrow as all week it has been a lovely shade of rainy gray. I will post the finished pieces next.
