I never thought of sun printing with black! WOW! Really nice results...actually, each one is quite nice but I'm really liking the black prints!

Hi Robbie,

I am always dyeing and painting with very colorful jewel tones, which make me happy. My fabric cupboards are full of them. So....I am trying to use black as well as adding black to all of my colors to dirty them and grunge them up a bit....they may work for my abstract quilts. We will see if they end up in any of my future compositions.
My Best To You,
LuAnn

The grass prints are my favorites, but they are all so pretty.
