For once in her life, the cat decided she didn’t want to be in the photo.
As you can probably see, decisions have been made, figures have been stitched into and the enlarged design printed off.
I’ve sampled different materials (centre above cat basket) and decided that printing onto abaca (tissutex) and then bonding onto strips of silk organza make good strong strips.
The small scale samples below are made from strips of printed vellum, shown flat in the previous posting but shown here forming a draped hanging which is closer to how I would like it to be, but life size!
So today I am ‘shopping’ for enough sheets of abaca/tissutex to print onto to make the full size figures seen above. I need to print the design four times so I can make enough strips to create the effect of movement as below.
