Charlene's piece for the Surface Design Round Robin
Remember Charlene's piece that I had showed you and asked for help? So far it has been parfait dyed by Charlene and then Beth had given it squiggles/sun rays from a thermofax screen using gold paint. I got to the do the next layer and was a bit concerned. The piece was pretty and I really didn't want to screw up.
After a month of hanging on my design wall I decided to use charcoal to highlight the shifts in colors. I made the charcoal permanent by coating the fabric with a textile medium. Here is the result. What I was already seeing as a fiery sun has become more distinct and dramatic. I think my addition was successful.
How are you doing with your Surface Design Round Robin pieces? I would love to see pictures!
