Rosellas in the figs

22 01 2011

Some time ago, I showed you some fabric I made with Lutradur bonded to sheer fabrics and heated.  I have now finised the piece that this was intended for.  Here are some photos.

here is some detail. The bird was made with silks – velvets and jacquards as well as some Textiva and felt.

The figs are Lutradur with a bit of Shiva stik for colour and beads.  The leaves are lightly heated tyvek.

I have never considered myself as capable  of  ‘realism’ but am determined to do different things this year.  There are a couple of things I would do differently next time, but it is all fun.  What do you think?

This is amazing! Well done – and especially because it’s doing something different! Love it!

I really admire work when someone adds other fibres and textiles I think it is great I am working on a waterfall scene at the moment and keep coming up with ideas of what else I can use to keep the water more realistic

June have you played with the Crystal angelinas or Lutradur Crash? Both might work in your waterfall.

I think it looks just great – and if you are having fun that is the most important part!
