Fake Batik


Fake Batik would make a good band name...

So I am thinking of going back to work on this piece that has languished for so long in the corner of the studio. Not really sure why I got so stuck on this one, I suspect I just love the heat set leaves too much... or maybe the problem is that it isn't what I planned it to be but I haven't yet figured out where to go with it...or maybe I cursed it with that post name... whatever, its stuck and to get it unstuck I will have to get alot less precious about it.

So... I've been thinking of incorperating more texture

soo.. I figure a quick way to do that would be to draw right on the fabric with crayons , iron then dye it and see where that gets me...

this is where it got me, more to think about

I do like the idea of being able to gesture draw and then use the drawings in fiber work

hmmm
