Well Lynda has got me all excited about my industry unit again, I have been dabbling but not really making a dent in it so i played with some half embellished surfaces today and added misty fuse and Fibre in form foil I have been harbouring. I followed the recipy given in her WOW article. The backing for this is a piece of cotton painted with fabric paints.
This one is kunin felt.
Now this is what has really worked well is I have been annealing copper since the course I went on with Enid my lecturer and so this is a copper diamonds with acrylic rinting over it. The lighter diamonds are kitchen foil made into a fabric paper and painted in multiple layers of paint, incuding some stewart gill metallica which puffs up a little and looks really crunchy and corroded!YEY!
I am playing with cuffs for this unit and am supposed to be using automatic stitches but they are not doing it for me. I need some time to sit and play. I will probably use them to join component parts using solvy eventually. I am back on the horse anyway, having hardly touched fabric for about 3 weeks!
Cosing gambit, setting up the first spread in Ellie's book. No detail yet, except the castle.
But it is building!!!!!!
