Essentials #3


Essentials #3
Hand dyed cottons, fused, machine quilted, mounted on painted wood panel. 11x14" $100 Email me. Sold



Here's my working arrangement. 
I have all the fabrics I intend to use in front of me, in piles of similar colors. I compose the design on the teflon sheet, with a predetermined size, which is pretty important to how the design will be worked out. The batting is cut already so I can try out the design for size. Tweezers, scissors and rotary cutter, along with my marking tool, a sliver of soap, are at the ready. To my right is my iron, a cheapo Proctor Silex which I have been using for years. It has a Silverstone surface which helps with getting the fusible off easily, when I goof. 

 
On another table I have my painting area. I am using acrylic craft paint and I just got some enamels in black, red, yellow, white and royal blue. This yellow panel is painted with the new enamel paint. It has a touch more shine than the regular matte acrylics.

  3. I think this might be my favorite of your current series. And I have always thought I don't especially like yellow. Hmm. guess it just has to be in the right amount and presentation. I appreciate your organization and efficiency. Thank you, as always, for sharing.
