Sun Painting part Two

I want to improve on my free motion quilting skills, so I've been using these little sun images to play around with. I saw on Sue Reno's blog she used a plate of glass over the object. Granted she is using cyanotypes and heliographic prints where mine is Setacolor paint. I used coins to hold down the leaves, bad idea, after the fabric was dry, you can see all the round coin shapes on the leaf images.

PS...I forgot to mention Grandma is back home now. Dan and I went to visit her a few weekends ago, she has a dog, (it was Marty's) J.J. to keep her company. They are so cute together, J.J is very attached to her.

Hi Marlene, the pane of glass works with cyanotypes, but not with paint. Try putting the fabric on a sheet of insulation board, or something similar, then using small sequin pins at stragetic spots to hold things in place. I try to put pins where I know I will be stitching later, because they can leave a (small) mark in the print.

Love the colors you are using, and look forward to seeing what you do with them.

I have never done fabric painting. Would you mind at some point posting a quickie tutorial, and some suggestions on what paints you use?
Your work is pretty-
