I'm still pulling fabrics from my "to be continued" basket and reworking the surfaces. This piece repeats the circle shape as more layers are added using a number of techniques.
|I started with 100% cotton and painted the surface using Setacolor fabric paint. |
I stamped some found objects and stenciled ferns across the surface.
|Next I melted soy wax and using a circular shaped sponged |
stamped the hot wax across the surface.
|The piece was over dyed with ice creating a terracotta background.|
|I mixed green fabric paint with a clear decolorant and sponged circle shapes on the fabric. Once the product is dry I heat set with an iron. As the fabric absorbs the heat the circle shapes begin to appear - It's like magic!|
|This is one of my favorite stencils and I thought the piece needed some |
dragonflies flitting about.
|Here is the finished piece|
