There are many processes in art work that offer Magical, "Oh How Cool Is THat" moments. Sunprinting is definately one of these techniques!!! One can never be quite sure what the magic moment of removing the masking elements will reveal and the discovery is such fun!!!
On Saturday Sept.25th I will be holding a Sunprinting Workshop so anyone can expereince the magic moment of revealing their creation on fabric.
Here are the details:
Sunprint using Transparent Setacolor Textile Paint on Damask Linen dinner napkin. (It is All about the layers!!) If one looks closely at the enlarged version of this picture you can see the woven damask pattern beneath the botanical sunprints!!
