I decided to play today. While I love sharing my methods with my friends, I find that my own muse takes a backseat as I work to make sure my friends are having a good time and that they will go home with something they love.
Today, I wanted, first, to see if I could salvage a couple of "sow's ears", as well as "finish" one I wasn't happy with yet. ( I love crumbling the wet cloth.)
I reworked most of my pieces at least 4 times (dried and ironed) and the result was the reverse was just as interesting as the front, a paler, softer version. Some reminds me of marble.
My "pale" green piece also became much more interesting.
Some might argue that I lost the stamp definition, but I'm much happier with the new cloth.
Now this piece of cloth now has some depth.
The reverse is just as vibrant.
Another I couldn't leave alone, was also "improved". It went from nice to NICE.
Yes it was usable. It would have made a great "sunset" jumping off point but....
so will the new version.............
and so will the reverse. Awesome rock!
I did another orange/red piece....
And then I finished the day with some "black"! Always a use for that palette.
Do I have any intended use for these pieces.
Not exactly............ but they will be used.
Actually, I SOOOOOO liked the last one I made a full metre this afternoon.
I have plans for this baby.
