I've begun work on the De Rhinocerote
I'm working on a firm velum and tracing the image with a .5 black pigma ink pen.
I use a Uni Pin .5 by Mitsubishi.
This will be my master pattern for both the illustrated quilt and for the collage quilt.
I'm going to work on the two of them at the same time for continuity.
Some of these lines will be filled in with black ink with Tsukineko pens, but each line will be quilted on in black 50 weight Masterpiece superior thread.
The shading will be done with the and colored Tsukineko pen and maybe a grey.
The original illustration was done by Conrad Gessner
His illustrations are fanciful and amazing.
