I have been part of an
Art Cloth Surface Design Round Robin
for the last few months.
I haven't been able to share much with you since we only reveal each round once a month...
I don't want to spoil the BIG REVEAL now do I
Well, we had our last Round 4 REVEAL today
so I can show you what I have been up to.
Nancy's Art Cloth
Sun Printing w/Setacolor Textile paints
Virginia added bubble wrap stamping with yellow textile paint
Kathi added stamping with a homemade cardboard stamp
This is where I come in.....Round 4
You can see that I have stamped circles of all sizes all over the Nancy's cloth.
But.....I couldn't stop there!
I mixed up a batch of flour paste resist:
I guess you could call this.....Round 4B
Flour Paste......needs to dry overnight
The next morning it is almost dry enough to crack the flour...
After it is cracked...
I applied textile paints on top of the flour
I just love the look of the piece at this painted stage
I flipped it over to the back side to see how much of the paint seeped through the cracks.
Now.....we wait for the paint to dry & cure.
Then the fabric is soaked until the flour can be rinsed away.
Here is the completed piece dried and pressed:
Nancy's Round Robin Art Cloth
You are looking through the layers of 5 different surface design techniques.
Art Cloth......it's a fun thing!
When I have photographed all of the completed pieces, I will post a slideshow so you can follow the evolution of each individual piece.
