He carries Silk, Cotton, and Organza.
I did some encaustic work with the silk and the silk disappears in the wax and the image is left.
If you use the cotton the image is stronger and more defined. So if you put the cotton in the background and the silk floating in the wax over the top you will see the cotton behind.
I think this encaustic thing needs some more play time devoted to it.
I used Dover images for the butterflies and the black and white images in the background. I just wanted to test it out before I got too carried away with anything.
I am planning on making some sachets and some ornaments with this type of work. I am excited and it is something I can do in the evening.
I have some cute pictures of Madi that I want to make ornaments with.
I also want to make some sachets with my art work. I will keep you posted on my progress.
I just love how the cotton looks. I can imagine making face patches out of these for clothes. You can use a fusible webbing and then iron the patches on and then do a decorative stitch around them.
It would be great if I knew how to quilt too. LOL!! I need another hobby!
I do though see something coming from the butterflies.
