I've been asked to include the process of how the faces are created and embroidered.
On this particular piece I have used alchohol ink on the background..mixing two colors:
Terracotta and Butterscotch. The face was glued onto Lacy Stiff Stuff with E6000 glue.
The face was then embroidered with Aiko Brick Red Lined Topaz, Brass Charlottes with Andalusite semi-precious stones on the side, along with vintage Japanese bugle beads accented on the sides. I'm now starting to surround it with Czech cushioned fire polished stones. TBC...
