Sun Print Fun

Hayden and I worked on creating some sun prints this morning. We used an old white bed sheet
spread out our plastic, put the sheet down on top of the plastic, hosed the sheet down and then started slopping on watered down acrylic paints.

We then went around the yard collecting leaves to pin on top of the painted fabric. We also used some items that had interesting patterns to see what kind of sun print design they would make.
One was a pebble shaped plastic placemat. We got a pretty nice design from that and from the onion skin netting we used.
Hunter joined us when we were throwing more paint in a splatter fashion onto the wet sheet.
Some leaves came out really well other just a faint image.
You can click on the collage picture to see it in a little closer detail.

  8. Thanks for sharing unique and funny information with us !!! Really bed sheets plays an important role in our life. We can use them for any thing according to our requirements. Recently I have purchased designer bed sheets at very low prices. These are very attractive in color and very good in quality.
