This technique has sparked some fun memories and I have definate ideas of what "To Do" with these samples and future attempts!!
Lately I have been working with lots of fabric- old lines doilies and such no matter what condition. I have been dying them using various methods and next I will be using the bits in fabric collages and dolls and some Art Quilts. this piece was on my table to be dyed and as it has wonderful texture in the hand done lace, I decided to try using it for a rubbing.
Here is the linen piece:
(For some reason, Blogger is insisting on posting this shot vertically, and after 3 tries to correct the orientation , this is how it stays!!! ARGHHHH!!!)
Here is the rubbing done with a purple crayon and then painted with Lettuce acylic paint from Ranger.
Next I did a rubbing of a simple stencil, nothing too daring.
This was done with a green crayon and a blue wash with the same typw of acrylic paint.
Next I did a stencil placed on top of my precious piece of star sequin waste. ( I only have this one piece and it is getting so paint encrusted itself , it makes a great surface for rubbings. I would love to find more of this stuff. Any Ideas, anyone????)
I did this one with the purple crayon/Lettuce paint combo.
this is yet another technique that I know that I will revisit when I emerge from dyeing vats and fabric fluff and obsession!!
