I've been busy this week upcycling a stack of t-shirts using sunpaint.  


This is the whole pile so far.


A close up of one in progress. 

blogged here.  http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2011/08/ic32-summer-project-sunpaint.html

I'm not sure this belongs in this thread so please forgive me and move it if it belongs in some other place, like image reproduction?

Thanks.  Yep.  The little 'bubbles' are Mardi gras beads.

 Grin Wow I had never heard of sunpainting but these are amazing. very prettty and sure makes an old T-shirt dressy and way more usable. I could even wear these to work. Off to find a tute. Thanks so much for showing us your great work!
