    It does take time! I did another test inside. I got the fabric very wet and thinned the paint a bunch. I used yellow and blue and then kind of mixed it at the edge for green. Yellow can get so dark that it does not lighten as much as the other colors under the leaves etc.

    I put it under a lamp to see if that would work, but it did not make much difference. I then used a hair dryer on high. That did work, so I know that heat and light are both important. I did use some of the window clings, and even though there was a clear edge, the color displacement was the same. I think I really want to do this outside in the sun and heat. I'll keep gathering items to use.

    Well, you seem well on your way to achieving what you want.....you could get quite creative with the "objects"....your post got my little brain working....I am itching to do something creative with dyes/paints/fabric. I think the best thing is...even experiments that aren't quite the result you are going for, can still be used in other projects. Any, mis-dyes would still make great scrappies or art quilts. If you get time, it would be really good if you could post pics.

    I did sun prints with a group of ladies a few years ago. We did it outside on a beautiful hot sunny day. We used real leaves and a variety of found objects. We had to get the leaves down fast after painting the cloth otherwise the effect just did not work, broad leaf ferns made beautiful patterns.
