The construction of Illuminated letters


I began this piece with a beautiful rich blue background fabric from Cherrywood.
The gold fabric comes from the stash from the past. Rose and Hubble gold.  It’s actually gold overprinted cotton.
The green fabric underneath the gold filigree is a batik fabric overlaid with Gold.
I’ve cut out the filigree images and used pigment ink to enhance it and create a 3 dimensional pattern on the fabric.

The images below show the gold fabric and how it has changed will Drapplique.
