Sun Printing.......Silk Scarves



The Art Sisters are at it again!

We are sun printing scarves...




Sun Printing with Botanicals

























11 x 60 inches


We are printing on Silk Scarf blanks from





We are using blossoms and leaves from our yards







We pressed them after picking to make

them lay very flat.







After the scarf is painted with Setacolor Textile 

Paint, the botanicals are placed on top,

then dried out in the sunshine.







This is what the scarf looks like after the

botanicals are removed.

The scarf is heat-set with an iron,

then hand washed.





Hydrangea blossoms and leaves







Oak Leaves







Lupine Leaves







Hardy Geranium Leaves and Blossoms
