  1. I love how that came out, and would love to try that. We have lots of what and grass in the backyard, and would be fun for a background. I will have to reread how to do sun printing.

  2. May be a dumb question, but how did it get white where the grass was. I see the blue faded some but shouldn't it be a brighter blue where the grass was?

    1. The blue is paler because it has dried. It is still wet in the first picture.
      Last month the blog http://andthenwesetitonfire.blogspot.com did a very good study of sun printing which just about covers anything you might want to know about the technique.

  3. Thank you Deborah. I went to that link but I still can't wrap my head around how the fabric gets bleached UNDER the objects as it dries. I would think it would be just the opposite and the color would remain dark where an object lays and lighter where the sun hits. You have made me want to try this though. Maybe with my granddaughters one day.

  4. Pretty! I was just photographing those grasses today. I use Setacolor opaque and transparent fabric paints. I need to restock and I'm wondering what kind you would recommend.

  5. I tried the blog spot above but couldn't actually find any instructions on this technique.

    1. There are about 16 posts on the ...And Then We Set Fire To It blog about this technique. Use the search button or click on the sun printing label in the side bar.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
