in progress

you may remember that a few weeks ago i was up in the murk midnight unable to sleep and i started playing around with some hessian, silk, cotton, string and thread.

i ended up with this
then i made some ice cubes with various paints, inks and pigments trapped therein and brought the two together

i brought it back in from the laundry this afternoon and rubbed some cold wax medium into it - i'll let it marinate a bit longer and then add some more stitching
what do you think?

ooooooooooo what a great technique!!! LOVE the result! Contrary to popular belief Calgary Alberta does NOT get a lot of snow and ice, so this would be a great way to try that snow dye bit
