Why print your photos on plain glossy paper when you can experiment with textures, add interest and use them in your fiber work!
Use your own digital images to create painterly photographs thin enough to be sewn or collaged into small compositions. This needs to be a 2day workshop or more to allow for the drying time of the molding paste and digital grounds that make this technique possible. For more information on digital grounds, go to inkAid.com.
Each student will learn this new technique and come away with an art-filled 7x9 Accordion Art Book!
Wen published this technique in Quilting Arts Nov 2012 and available as a DVD Workshop though Interweave. HERE
Most any photograph will work with this texturing technique. Think about how oil paintings look with their textured stokes. You can create the texture for a photograph of an old wall, landscape or you may want just a touch of texture to add interest to the background of a portrait.
Tip- Create small samples to experiment with the technique. Explore different textures. Should it compliment your picture, or stand on it’s own. Enjoy this creative tool in the digital palette!
