I have not made much progress lately in the actual painting and stitching of my "doodled" hexagons, but, I have been working to design and sort of plan out this project.
I say..........sort of plan.... because I don't really know where I am going with this, just that I am intrigued with the process and want to see where it might lead.
At this point I am trying to decide exactly what colour palette I will want to play with.....so, for now, I am creating, organizing and preparing designs that I plan to Hex.... in ink, paint and cloth.
I thought you might like to see how I go about this......it is fairly simple really.....I doodle and sketch on small templates I created for myself
I place mirrors to "see" what designs emerge
when something usable appears.....I clean it up and refine it
I also play on my computer to get a good visual of the final design. One of each (different) hexagon piece is carefully redrawn on paper that is cut to actual size...these then become the templates that I will use for the eventual trace onto cotton process
To keep it all organized, each "set" is being kept in a small zip-lock bag, stapled to the sheet containing its corresponding design.
