Playing with surface design

24 07 2010

I have a number of pieces I am working on between everything else.  this is one.  So far, I have dyed the fabric (bronze, rust and very light chocolate); brushed on discharge paste to bleach it out a bit; and applied three different colours of shiva stiks with three different rubbing plates.  I quite like it.  Tomorrow, if time allows, I will do some photo / image transfer.  Maybe.  Interested in what you think so far.

The whole piece - it needs an iron

Cecile, I love the subtle colours and complexity of the piece. This is the sort of thing I’d love to do but don’t know where to begin. It’s beautiful.

Thanks Monica
I have been procrastinating about what to do next, but I think I know where I want to take it. If I get the chance I will do more today. Keep checking in from time to time and I might be able to help you get started.

I love it already, I will definitely keep checking to see how you improve it even more. Cheers, Robin

thanks Robin. I have chosen and rejected several options today, but I think I have decided on the next couple of steps. I am still hopeful to get some done tonight.
