I have finally finished my sea goddess piece, this started life as a hand knitted square which i embellished onto a piece of painted wunder under, i added silk fibres, roving and angelina fibres. I embellished this then to a piece of creped backed satin and then to some felt. Next step was to add some machine embroidery and some hand embroidery and lots of beads, i made a molded face from paper clay and painted it and then after attaching it i layered a piece of painted mysty fuse over tthe top and heat blasted it in place while it was hot i added some foil highlights. i added some shell beads along the bottom edge.
I wasn't sure how to mount this piece so for now i painted a canvas to try and resemble water and mounted it to this !! Thanks for looking !
