Tropical Fantasy

This piece of work using another technique of making a fibre background. I used Merino silk tops and laid them on plastic and teased them into swirls and shapes, then soaked the fibres in a wallpaper paste solution. These fibres were then dyed using Procion dyes dripped with a pipette. When totally dried I placed them as background on dyed cotton fabric. I embellished this piece using the heads from silk flowers and bugle beads made from inked paper and dribbled with gold embossing powder.
