Painting technique day 17

Crumpling and Sunprinting

This is another oldie but goodie but makes a great first layer. Basically this is just a piece of heavily misted cloth with some paint on it - pretty diluted. I crumpled it into a ball and set it out to dry.

This is a previously crumpled piece.

This is sun printing and the only thing I am going to say about this is that Lynda covered this technique pretty thoroughly on the fire blog during June 2014.


  1. I like crumpling and scrunching. Texture is everything!

  2. Like the purple fabric a lot. In Mickey Lawler's Skydyes book she has lots of tips on painting on fabric to get texture. Here is a link to my blog to show some I did.


We would love to hear from you and even better have some links to your work!
