An Experimental Structure

I started out with a piece of white fabric and began randomly gluing some technical illustrations of cicadas down with Golden gel medium. I then covered the surface of the fabric with metallic textile paints and glazed the line drawings with Golden fluids. When there was no more white fabric showing through I began to […]

These are the Clessidra stockings you can find the pattern on knitty.com. I used Knitpicks Bare – Merino Wool/ Silk, fingering weight yarn.
