I just wanted to throw out there that I've done the acrylic with fabric medium thing too- but ony for a focal print.  I did a tutorial back in the day
http://pookalakachicka.blogspot.com/2010/07/toot-oriole.html
but that's about it for my experience with printing on cloth.  However, I was at JoAnns yesterday and saw this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Fabric-Artists-Workshop-Techniques/dp/1589236637/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1366742864&sr=1-1&keywords=the+complete+fabric+artist%27s+workshop
which I had to buy.  I'm sure there are tons of methods in there that I'll never have the skills to do, but maybe it'll give me a few ideas!

Quilting Daily had a thing this morning about making a soft surface for printing.  http://www.quiltingdaily.com/blogs/quilting-daily/archive/2013/04/18/surface-design-tips-how-to-make-a-padded-surface-for-fabric-stamping.aspx?a=qe130423  They have lots of books and resources for surface design.  Their newsletter and blog usually give you a good idea of what the project is about. 

The whole replication discussion has me worried, I can use the same stencils and similar leaves while sunpainting but it isn't what I would call reliably reproducible.

No replica is ever going to be exactly the same as the last, but in theory you can repeat the process an infinite number of times to get products that look more or less the same.

I would still consider sun painting printing because theoretically you could put down the same leaf down and get the same general look; it's different than doing something by hand that you might not be able to do again.

LOVE her effects! Stamping to apply resist then over-dyeing looks very much like batik, but also maintains reproducibility. I think that would count? So want to try this now!

No worries waggonswest! I agree with Leather and Lace - using the same resist shape to create a pattern on your fabric would fall under the umbrella of printing I say. Your sunprinting is a go  Smiley

So if i wanted to sunprint then stencil and then stamp then overdye fabric that's okay?

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Awesome!  Add in a bleach pen and you've pretty much got it covered.

hubby talked me out of learning to screen print. “right now” which totally means he's leaving room for learning later.  Wink
