ECLIPSE

I seem to be fixated on planets at the moment as I seem to be veering towards this theme but nevertheless enjoyed doing it it.  We were playing with Lutradur in our group and decided to try this medium out on my piece, therefore some of the rays of the sun are speckled as I used my heat gun and distressed some Lutradur, which turned out all crinkled and then placed it between teflon sheets and ironed it flat and then painted them red, cut them out and spray glued them onto my piece before stitching them in place.  They give a bit of texture overall. 
My 'eclipse' was done in black net but in the photograph does not seem to have shown itself as well as I would have liked.  However I did have fun with it.

  1. I love the textural effect you have achieved with the distressed lutradur, Patricia. The eclipse is subtle but definitely adds another element. Nice contrast of round and jagged shapes.

  2. Like it, Patricia! Good contrast, texture and shapes. I can see the net - especially when you click to see the larger image - net was a good choice.

  3. Love the feeling of movement from the detached 'rays'. I agree with Hilary, the net shows up a lot more on the enlarged picture.

  4. Agree - you see a lot more on the bigger picture. The lutradur worked beautifully and has added another dimension to the piece. Lovely.

  5. there is a lot of movement in your design, and I too, like the effect of the lutrador and seeing it as a larger photo. Good use of the colour.
