I finally finished this piece. It's discharged (Soft Scrub) black cotton velvet background with hand dyed silk and appliqued velvet, silk organza square pieces along with fused grocery bags pieces. Embellished with various threads.
I'll be teaching silk dye painting all levels at Chastain Arts Center here in Atlanta starting the week of Mar 23 on Tuesdays or Fridays from 10am-1pm for ten weeks. Sign up to have fun and create beauuuutiful things in silk!
