Let's start off with a piece from Marjee!
This was done using garbanzo bean and corn starch paste. I ironed the backside when it was nearly dry and that made the paste really hard so the cracks were sharp. The whole process was an experiment. The areas were blocked out using washable gel glue to wall in--or out--different colors of dye. Enjoying the blog. --
And Ann Scott added in the comment section yesterday but I wanted to also post it here so no one would miss it. It is worth going back and seeing her piece posted yesterday after reading this additional comment.
One thing I forgot to mention about my piece is that the golden bits toward the bottom are painted fusible...another fun technique I like to use. -- Ann
Here are a couple of pieces sent in by Elaine Ross
We had a challenge in guild to do a quilt based on a book. I chose "Butterflies and Bottlecaps" which is about a young girl with butterflies for hair, who hates her hair and wishes she was normal. Her mother kept telling her "One day you will see how beautiful you are". So the girl met another girl with Bottlecaps for hair, each wished for the others hair...hence realizing they were beautiful in their own right. I say all that to show you I collected beer bottlecaps for months to use as embellishment. (My husband was only too glad to help.) I painted them to give a representation of hair color! --Elaine
