Tile Paintings

I love looking for tin tiles, metals, anything that creates a beautiful painting on cloth . This one came from a road trip to AZ. many years ago, I found this along side a trash bin, and just had to have it! 

This one to the right is what it looks like now on silk. A simple process of  cloth over tin, with few colors in between.. Fun to play with on a warm day.  Although this one is reversed if you look closely you can see the separation lines of hues, along with some detail. Think of the possibilities!

  2. Very interesting way to make marks on cloth, Teresa! Thanks for posting!

  3. That turned out really neat. I was surprised at how much detail it picked up. They are fabric rubbings.
