Paper {Lattice} Shibori

Sunday, October 13, 2013

I love the look of lattice shibori.
I tried to recreate that look using paper and distress inks.
It took several tries and variations on my technique to create something I am happy with.
While I didn't capture the type of bleed I was looking for, I loved how this piece turned out.
I think I need to use an ink that bleeds and spreads more than a water based product does.
Maybe India ink?
Nice to see you again!
