As a 3 dimensional artist, I set myself a challenge to 'dress' two manniquins and during the four day event at the Knit & Stitch Show. One manniquin to be dressed in the conventional art papers available but with the addition of colour , the second figure using magazines. Here are the manniquins as seen on the first day..........
The artpaper dress developed using proceon dyes, printing blocks and marcel pens.
Really enjoyed making this dress, sloshing bright colours on papers, printing and making marks finally manipulating the papers to form a flambouyant party dress .....very 'strictly come dancing'!
I loved the gaps in the dress showing the wire frame but had two more days to go, so more layers would be required.
Day three and four will follow!
