Module 3-Chapter 9 Resolved Sample Part 1

I started by experimenting by taking one of the waxed 3-D spiral and its picture which I turned into a black and white photocopy. I then overlaid it with some transparent paper onto which I transferred the lines. This sample got photocopied and reduced onto a transparency . I then cut out the shapes/lines to turn it into a stencil. For the following fabric samples I used the positive and negtive shapes of the stencil to spray or apply paint onto fabric. The sprays used where from Marabu and are especially designed for fabric


9/2: stencils, small and big and cut out shape

 9/3: sprayed pattern onto paper

 9/4: sprayed and applied paint onto a light colored blue fabric 

9/5: paint applied onto an already painted fabric

9/6: same as above

9/7 : same as above

9/8: pattern sprayed onto blue fabric

 9/9: sprayed and painted onto blue nylon organza
 9/10: sprayed onto orange nylon organza

 9/11: "painted" transparency stencil: this picture itself is very interesting and could be developped into a design or copied onto fabric

Me, having fun in my kitchen (obviously not cooking)

Conclusion: The spiral used for this work is certainly not ideal for creating an appropriate design. However the idea of movement which it translates is something I will try to use in my sample. The fabric produced here is beautiful especially when overlying the organza on top of the coton fabric. This is difficult to photograph, but I can assure you that sense of depth created is beautiful.Also, the idea is to be able to burn away some of the organza to reveal the fabric underneath.

Love your spiral template experiments - I look forward to watching it develop. Great to see the photo of you "having fun".
