Rock garden

The "shell" for this vessel was another discarded sample using wireform - transfer painted organza laid over a fine cotton with rows of straight stitching was too rigid for what I wanted at the time.

Venetian & woven picots, cup stitch, bullion knots and a few beads provide lots of texture.

Your vessels are very successful. I'm glad to see someone enjoys using transfer painted organza as much as I do. I find it so useful.

Thankyou. Yes, I find transfer paints very useful too - when I remember I have them - and particularly like the effects which can be achieved using those in the powdered form.
