Dye-Na-Flow Day

These days are irresistible!  I had to go outdoors again.

The sun was shining.  The birds were chirping… and I was sunprinting again, only this time, with Jacquard’s Dye-Na-Flow.

Here’s a link to a quick and easy tutorial for sunprinting with Dye-Na-Flow:


She used a stencil but I used real, freshly picked plants here.  Let me know if you have any questions about the process.

About turtlemoonimpressions

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

    Janis these are awesome! Your backyard is just heaven in this beautiful sunny weather! I don’t blame to for spending another wonderful day outside creating these amazing prints. I am especially love the light green fern print and the first one with green&orange.

    Thanks Hema! I’ve already been playing with some of these and putting them into some new WIPs, which has, of course, spurred me on for more. You know the old saying: Got to make hay while the sun is shining.

    I have a houseful of kids due here in a day. This looks like a good, creative activity without being too stressful to the creator. We might give it a try… Your samples are beautiful!

    I just tried dye-na-flow for the first time for sunprinting. I loved the bright colours and got crisp outlines. Except with yellow…it tended to leave a pale yellow stain where it should have been white(working with white fabric!)
