Summer Solstice Monoprints

For summer solstice we decided to make some monoprints to hang up. We painted tempera paint directly onto tin foil, then printed it onto fabric. We finished by sewing the top edge and hanging them on pressure rods on all the kitchen windows.

Below is Dashiell’s interpretation of our solstice celebration which included our family roasting marshmallows by the fire with candles.
