Module Five – Chapter Eight – PAPER RELIEF INTO FABRIC RELIEF – PART TWO
This is the continuation of the latter post and presents four more samples of fabric translation from paper. Again, for an easy reference, I have placed both the photographic record from Chapter 1 (on the left) and its related paper relief surface from Chapter 3 (on the right) before the picture of each fabric sample.
Fabric sample 7 – First translation into fabric
For this first translation I rolled some felt tubes and saw them onto a linen background, then added on them cheesecloth, wadding and threads in imitation of rust together with a crocheted chain that relates to the real chain visible in the photo above. Techniques: appliqué.
Fabric sample 8 – Second translation into fabric
In this case tubes are made by padding big tucks and “rust” is obtained with heavy clusters of French knots and natural wood beads. Techniques: tucking, padded quilting, hand embroidery (French knots).
Fabric sample 9 – First translation into fabric
Techniques: padded quilting, wadded quilting, appliqué, hand embroidery (isolated fly stitches).
Fabric sample 10 – Second translation into fabric
Techniques: appliqué, free machine embroidery.
