Statues are great for creating portraits because of the sharp contours on the face.
been doing portraits with cheesecloth for a while, but I decided to try
a few different techniques.This one is just pure white.
The next one will be in shades of grey so on Tuesday, maybe today, I will dye the fabric to match.
I'm not going to go into all the details of how I've done it… you need to come to class for that.
I will share the quilting and for the first time I'm using my GoPro
camera to capture the images as I sew.
The GoPro is used mainly for extreme sports photography.Its even got a housing so I can use it when I'm surfing or skydiving.!!!! NOT
