I wanted to try my hand at thread painting and finally took the time to do it. I chose a challenging subject of a face and am thrilled with my results. I then put the face onto a collaged quilt. The leaves are Lutradur.
Wonderful, I wish i could see a close up of the face. How big is the quilt? Did you use paint or ink too?
So many questions but it is wonderful
Super ! the colors are happy ,your thread painting is quite good-looking, too !
Thank you Whidbey and butterfly! You can see a closer view of the face on my blog here:
The face is completely done in thread except for the lines I traced in Sharpie to start. The quilt is small, around 8.5 x 11, but I haven't measured it, so that's a guess.
I went to your blog and I was impressed your thread work face is even more amazing up close.. Thank you for sending me there. I have to smile you talked about Lutradur. I have never heard of it before so I figured you were from somewhere over seas. Imagine my surprise when I read you are from North Dakota. Uff Da! I graduated from Minot state. Soo what is Lutradur?
Whidbey, I found this information that probably explains Lutradur better than I can off the top of my head. The information comes from C&T Publishing:
• Fabulous new non-woven fabric adds interest to art quilts, scrapbooks, ATCs, bookmaking, altered arts• Ultra-strong sheets are easy to fold, cut, stitch, distress, and embellish• Create delicate translucent effects with paints, inks, dyes, and stamps• The perfect size for ink-jet printers or all-in-ones• Learn all about how to use Lutradur in Fabulous Fabric Art with Lutradur by Lesley Riley
Lesley Riley's book is a great resource for learning great ways to work/play with it.
Beautiful work, I wish I could blow it up to see the detail. Love the colors!
