How To: Make Your Own DIY "Sun Print" Fabric

How To: Make Your Own DIY "Sun Print" Fabric

Well, I know what I'm doing this weekend!   


These "sun prints" utilize a special kind of permanent, light-sensitive dye called INKODYE, which is similar (in theory and process) to cyanotypes. I love how Jessica from How About Orange used it in her DIY fabric project. This stuff can be used on cotton, silk, suede, wood, and just about any natural fiber, making the creative options nearly limitless! For more ideas, check out some of Jessica's other INKODYE projects.

So, let's hear it: how would you use this seemingly magical substance? Let's put our brains together and come up with some cool project ideas!
