The 6 Step Sun Print process is simple, fun, and results in amazingly clear prints.

  1. Wash and iron fabric.
  2. Mix solutions and paint fabric in a darkened room.
  3. Hang to dry.
  4. Layer fabric, negative, and clear glass. IMPORTANT! Due to the process involved in making the negatives, your photo may not be perfectly straight on the negative. You can straighten the photo on the fabric, BUT any area not covered by the negative when exposed to the light will also be on your finished fabric. We recommend that you cover any area you do not want to print with black construction paper (or something equally opaque) that will not allow the light to expose the fabric.
  5. Expose in the sun in your own backyard.
  6. Rinse and hang to dry.
