In the last post back in April, I made a lot of rusted fabrics and papers while I was on the Alice Fox course, I decided it was time to start using them up along with a lot more rusted fabrics created last year.
First I thought I would make a few more.
(apologies I put Amanda Fox. have now corrected it to Alice Fox)
Fabric wrapped around rusty tin cans
Fabric wrapped around 6" nails
A selection of old and new rusty fabrics
The fabric below is a very loose weave easy to stitch into, can't remember the name of it but it is the one used in Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn's DVD, available from ArtVan Go.
I stapled three pieces together before I rusted it then hand stitched in each portion.
I stapled a whole piece of fabric before rusting for this sample below.
I placed a template over the cloth so I could judge where the stitching would go.
