Sun Printing with Fabric Paints!

The day was sunny and warm creating the perfect conditions for painting with Setacolor fabric paints. We have a weeping cherry tree in the yard that needed a trim so I snipped off a few branches to use for this project.

I started by painting red and pink paint across the surface of the fabric. I laid the leaves on top of the wet paint and repainted some leaves with a light green. After the paint was completely dried I heat set the fabric with a hot dry iron.

I like finding organic materials around the yard for sun printing. I really don't know how the paint reacts to the sun... magic... Keebler Elves... I'm not sure but the end results are fun!
