A Stitch In Time

My Life In Words


Posted by debraroby on August 10, 2005

If you’re like me, you prowl home dec catalogs for inspirational designs. And one design that many of us like is Andy Warhol’s Sunset. It’s often seen as a throw rug like this:

So I painted a bunch of yellow suns the other day, and covered them with a rice paste resist (with varying results as it appears). Then today I painted the rest of the pieces. These I tore into their individual pieces (so I could play a bit) while they cure. After a couple days, I’ll heat set it with iron, scrub off the resist and wash the pieces. Then on to the next step, which will be piecing these back together in a different configuration. (looks like I may be repainted some of those suns, too).

    Very cool, Debra. Rice paste resist. I’ll have to investigate that. Love your colors.
