I consider myself being a ceramist or clay artist.I went out on a limb and did something quite different than my usual artwork with clay.I needed a challenge, something to get me up and running again. I painted "Whimsy Woman" on fabric, then appliqued it onto the back of a tabard made out of black fabric, I then had to sew it together. Ugh! This was submitted for the tabard challenge for the San Antonio Fiber Art Style Show . To my surprise, I won the Tabard Challenge. What was so exciting my sister, Sandra Edsall won the Best of Show! This wasn't rigged really!! By vote of 300 attentees.
I used a mix of acrylic, fabric medium and fabric paints for my painting. I accented with a gold metallic pen. The hair is Lutradur treated with paints and heat.
