I have finally started doing some sampling on a new direction for my work. The piecing technique will stay the same but I am experimenting with the theme of old and rusty boats. This is the first one – Peeling Paint. Still need its binding as you can see on the right hand side.
The fabric was fun to do. It started as a piece of black fabric – I didn’t think much of the discharging process so added textile paints and markal and more paint. Great fun and I hope you feel it represents peeling paint.
Need to get back to the machine and finish it.
