You will most certainly enjoy wearing this art piece as well as its comfort and softness. This art to wear t-shirt is handmade with a blend bamboo cotton lycra jersey that I hand painted with pink and lilac shades. I then sun printed with some treasures from my garden: Japanese maple leaves, cypress leaves, and other leaves. Because the painting is done on wet fabric you obtain a beautiful watercolor effect and it creates new color shades as they blend together. The sun printing technique consists in painting on wet cloth and then apply some objects on to the wet painted fabric. It is then left to dry in the sun. Once the fabric is dry, it will leave the marks of the objects that were placed on the fabric. I gave this top a femine and flattering but also modern cut.
Please note that due to the technique used the leaf placement and each print / color variations will vary from one shirt to another. It will result in a one of a kind artsy top.
