Today on my way to work I looked at the cloudy sky and decided to paint a "Purple Rain Umbrella"
Step 1: Supplies
I needed an Umbrella bank
shades of purple fabric paint
brushes and an iron
Step 2: Painting
I opened the umbrella and painted cloud like images on the inside.
when dry I ironed the panels to heat set the fabric paint. I used a dry setting for nylon.
Step 3: When It Is Finished
The cool thing is the umbrella looks great weather you are under it looking up or outside looking in.
