Texture

Colour Project – Red, Part 5

1.5 x 1.5cm squares cut from red fabrics – silks, cottons, polyesters, t/shirting then threaded. I really like the effect…need to test how wearable it is.This is a sample from my first attempt at Breakdown Printing at a WAFTA workshop with tutor Linda Stokes. I’ve used cassette tape spools, bubble wrap and a piece of that puffy netting they put around mangoes to create the texture. We will be adding more layers and depth through additional printing and discharge at the second part of the workshop this Sunday.Another necklace style piece – same red fabrics cut in long thin triangles. It’s interesting how each type of fabric reacts differently….some twist, some bubble, some lie flat.
