19 1/2" x 16". Shaving cream painted fabric. Angelina film, and beading. Machine quilted.
Peggy, I like this alot.
The technique sounds interesting, wish I could see it bigger..
I think the composition is great. How did you use the shaving cream?
Stitcher, The shaving cream is spread out on a plastic surface and smoothed out. Dyes or paints are drizzled over the shaving cream. You then draw a fork or comb or any other tool over the dye to create designs----marbeling, feathering, whatever.
Then you lay a piece of fabric over the dye, press lightly and lift off.
In this piece the background is commercial fabrics; the rectangles are the shaving cream technique.
oh, ok thanks for letting me in on your secret! I did not see that the rectangles were the shaving cream, but get it now. Thanks for replying to my post. It was the first one I have sent!
That sounds like a fun technique. Thanks for sharing. I love the colors of this piece! There is a lot of energy.
Here is a close up of the piece. It shows the marbled fabric fairly well.
The Angelina film is behind that fabric, and has been subjected to the heat gun.
This also shows the quilting and bead work a little better.
Thanks for the new picture Peggy H. It really shows up your quilting. I am very new to figuring out what is what on this site! This definately caught my attention though!
Look forward to seeing the rest of your series!
Love this piece and the technique is fascinating. Will have to try that!
BEAUTIFUL tones. Love how the stitching and beading compliment, don't overwhelm the amazing fabrics.
I just love your piece. It is very very very nice. Thanks for sharing the technique also. It sounds like fun.
