Thank you for describing your techinques used. Very interesting and it has turned into a fabulous work of art. It must have been a lot of fun experimenting like this.
Grace thanks for explaining how you did it - I have not often taken a soldering iron to fabrics - or experimented in this way. I will have to look out for and put the rubber mat technique on my 'to try' list
Just glorious Grace. You are always one to experiment, and this piece is simply beautiful. Thank you too for sharing the procedure and product usage. It is not what you usually share, but shows just how versatile you are in this world of stitch and textiles.
Grace, this is a very interesting piece, and yes, unlike your other delightful work. always good to try different things.... very nice
Yes, Sharon. The base is a piece of slubbed polyester fabric with lengths of crystal organza in different colours applied. The central panel is melted glue which I then stencilled using a rubber type mat. As this was worked some time ago I can't remember the name of the mats but I know you can buy these at some embroidery suppliers. I then used a very fine soldering iron to burn away the sides and into some of the layers of fabric, added a few lines of embroidery and some beads. This was just an experiment at the time to see what I could do and like a lot of things got tidied away and forgotten until I came across it lately.
Interesting piece - can you tell us more about it?
This is so interesting Grace. I like the colours and the textures. It is always good to try something new.
