Solar Fast Starter Print Kit

If you have some sunny days where you are, you might want to experiment with solar prints.  Solar printing is the easy process of using the sun, dye and various objects to create images on fabric.  We found a great blog post by Sue Reno about solar dying using Jacquard Solar Fast.  She used dogwood leaves and blossoms to create a beautiful and unique textile.

You can also create images using photographic negatives.  The possibilities are endless!  Look around your house and your yard.   We’re sure you have some items that would make interesting solar prints.  How about dried or plastic flowers, doilies and lace, bushes and trees.

You can make these prints on scrap fabric or t-shirts.  If you use fabric, you can then turn your new yardage into zipper pouches or hot pads or even a lovely camisole.  We weren’t kidding when we said the possibilities are endless.
