As I was still waiting for all of my materials and equipment to be delivered to me here in the
UK, I had very little to work with
for this piece. I had, however, just bought myself a new Epson WF2530 printer
with pigment ink so I thought this would be the perfect time to try printing on
fabric, something I have wanted to do for sometime.
I manipulated a digital image of one of my oil paintings using Paint Shop Pro 7's various effects and filters to create a wild, colourful image. I then printed the image onto 6 x A4 pieces of fabric. Here is the original image:
I then joined the pieces together using fusible webbing and quilted the design around the shapes using blue, orange, hot pink and lime green cotton. I haven't attached the binding yet but will do once all of my equipment turns up and it will be a simple black binding (as pictured).
Materials used: Pigment printed cotton, polyester and rayon thread, fusible webbing
