I haven't done a great deal this last month with textiles ,seem to have other things going on.However,things tick on in my head.When I have had a spare half hour I have been playing with a fossil and moulding from it.I started with paper towels and tissue ,then moved on to use silk fabric and silk fibres.
These were paper which I added to some muslin.I used watered down PVA glue.
These are a mixture.
I then remembered a bowl made in a workshop a year or so ago ,top left,by wrapping a mould in cling film then pasting small pieces of silk before leaving to dry.I tried it again by wrapping a piece of wood,top right and doing the same thing.I have an idea to do something by layering the fossils to a shape.Ideas just floating around at the moment,the crochet doily has been included as it has a sort of ammonite feel.
In another spare half hour I played with a photo taken in the museum ,turning it to a black and white.I printed it on a laser printer and then made a thermofax screen.I will play with this and print some to see what I can produce.
Time is ticking along and it will soon be time for our exhibition,it would be lovely if any of you can come along.Details below.
