Rod has focused a great deal of time and energy on his tile project. He has loved the tile at the Alhambra. He originally wanted me to quilt that pattern....I told him NO! Sooo, he has decided to paint the pattern on silk. He spent many hours figuring out how to draw the pattern on paper. Then he used an exacto knife to cut it out of card stock.
He used that as a template.
He spent a great deal of time learning about painting on fabric with wax resist.
|this is his 'practice' on cotton.|
