My Mermaid "in Progress"
Last week A few of us from the club got together for a creative one day "Journey" to create a beautiful Mermaid Art Doll. The class was held up in the "shop" and Stephanie Novatski taught her "techniques class" for her beautiful "Soprano"!
We learned some really "cool" painting on cloth techniques..such as applying acrylics to fabric through stencils, and doing "rubbings" onto the fabric using Shiva painsticksand (even crayons !!), texture plates..stamps..stencils. Is amazing how you can create a whole new fabric with these easy techniques! We also learned a "very cool" technique using a glue gun and dropping the hot glue in water and when cool...rubbing gold flakes onto the design..Wow...beautiful!
It was such a great day of inspiration and creative bonding! See the pictures of class and of my doll still in progress.
My mermaid will be holding a pair of pink ballerina shoes..and she will be "WONDERING" of the day when she will be able to "Dance"!
Her Tail is also "in progress"....i free motioned and "heated the edges to distort..then i rubbed some of the gold flecks onto the warm edges...now it needs some kind of "fluff"...added...right now its very boring! I need more "TEXTURE"!!!!
