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!

WIP Wednesday

I think I managed to completely forget to post last Wednesday. Oops.

Today I’m working on my homework for my Monoprinting class at Joggles.com.  Actually, I’m working on last week’s lesson — it is SUNNY and about 45, so I’ve got some sunpainting projects out on the back patio.

Later, I’m going to try this week’s lesson – which is Frottage printing.  I still need to reread the lesson, so I can figure out just what that is.

Yesterday, I finally finished the large applique quilt I have been working at off and on over the last 2 months. 



And the other thing I’m trying to do today is get my round robin journal ready to mail tomorrow.  I joined a group that is doing a round robin based on the Alphabet (ala Alphabetica by Lynne Perella).  It needs to be postmarked by tomorrow, and I’m still debating about which book to use and how to do the sign-in page…..

I think this is going to be the front cover, I glued some chipboard letters on the front and then coated it with black gesso.  It’s not done, but this may have to suffice for the time being.  After I get it back, I can work more on making it beautiful.

Hopefully I’ll be back later to post pictures of interesting sun painted fabric!
