What Do I Need?

For any sun painting project, you'll need:

How Much Do I Buy?

This matters on how big of an area you want to paint, and how thick the fabric is. A small habotai scarf will only use part of the 45 ML bottle, while a jersey sweater can use at least 2 of the 250 ML bottles.

We have kits that put all of this together for you, or you can use the kits as a guideline to figure out how much and what you need to order.

We also have books which provide neat folding and application ideas.

If you're looking for detailed instructions for sun painting, please see our Sun Painting Instructions page.
