LIGHT THE WAY

Do It Yourself - - Try It -

Sun print­ing makes it su­per easy to trans­fer com­plex lace pat­terns while giv­ing this clas­sic ma­te­rial a fresh, mod­ern ap­peal, left. Cut lace to fit around a white lamp­shade. In a room away from di­rect sun­light, ap­ply a thin, even coat of black So­larFast dye to the lamp­shade us­ing a foam crafts brush. While dye is damp, wrap lace around the lamp­shade, pulling taut and ty­ing ends to­gether with thread or se­cur­ing with trans­par­ent tape. Ex­pose lamp­shade to sun­light ac­cord­ing to So­larFast in­struc­tions. Af­ter ex­po­sure is com­plete, re­move from sunny area (A) and de­tach lace. Hand-wash lamp­shade im­me­di­ately in a bath of hot wa­ter and So­larFast Wash, ag­i­tat­ing to re­move ex­cess dye. Let dry.

BE­CAUSE OF ITS CYLIN­DRI­CAL SHAPE, THE SHADE SHOULD BE RO­TATED IN EQUAL TIME IN­CRE­MENTS DUR­ING LIGHT EX­PO­SURE SO THE EN­TIRE SUR­FACE DE­VEL­OPS CON­SIS­TENT COLOR.
