click on photos to enlarge and see texture detail What looks black here is really dark blue
12" X 10" with some pieces going over the sides
It is made up of a background of a paint dyed paper towel, dyed dryer sheets in yellow, red, purple, blue, and beige; and dyed red tulle. Of course putting red on yellow makes orange...It is then top sewn free motion style with deep red rayon thread, and then it is sewn on the back side with a gold metallic thread in the bobbin so the gold shows on top, but does not break when done this way. I then added a little acrylic paint to the top for added flames in blue and orange and yellow. It is highly textured.
I am thinking of making a trilogy at least, Fire/Air/Water...will have to dye more fabric sheets to get Earth.
But here's the first one: "Fire"...
