Monotypes with Fabric Sun Printing Paints

The sun came out yesterday for the first time in weeks. I'm taking a Joggles monoprinting class from Susun Sorell. I rushed to paint the muslin with Setacolor Soleil sun printing fabric paint, add the elements for printing and sprinkle with salt.

Here's my printed monotype fabric after six hours of exposure in the not so bright but sunny Northwest.

I like the print made on the foam core and will experiment using this technique with different kinds of papers and fabircs. Thank goodness the sun came out or I might not have completed this lesson.

Hey Paula! I really love the orange color and objects you played with. It seems the darker the color the better the print will turn out. ;)

I loved seeing your sun print, Paula. The stitcher in me would like to see you do some machining on top!
