Since I really had only drawn 1/4 of the overall design, I first needed to make copies, which were also enlarged, then trimmed and taped together to form the complete design.
|roughly 20" square|
Next, it was traced onto a piece of pre-washed, 100% cotton
I am keeping the process super simple, plain old colour pencil is what I am using to bring the design lines to life. In order to mitigate the possibility of smudging the tracing, I am keeping most of the traced fabric folded up as I work and only exposing as much area as needed at a time.
Randomly laying in the colour using 1 pencil each, in Blue, Green and Yellow, then blending. The colour will later be sealed with a textile medium ( I plan to do a couple of "tests" to see which brand I like best for this project)
I will go into more details of this process as it progresses.
