This book has some plastic texture sheets, and I got if from the Nat'l Gallery of Art in DC.
come see it HERE!
Recently I posted a photo transfer onto fabric of this fountain. I started by just drawing a fountain, then leaves (that aren't there in real life) and then got out the textured plates to see what could happen.
There was time and fabric left, so I drew some spirals for fun...
You know what came next...
You are supposed to leave them to cure for a day but I just couldn't wait a moment past noon the next day to cut them apart and press to set the color.
These are oil paints, so you need to use a pressing sheet. I started with paper, then used more muslin and a hot iron.
I think my portable design wall (shown not opened up) makes it look like an art show!! How fun! I might put three of them together in the same quilt.
Or do separate ones. What do you think?
The little fan on the bottom, was to be an underwater fan, and will still be. I,er, sliced it off accidentally in my glee and haste, but it can still be fused back together. No Worries!
