LIGHT THE WAY
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.
