Relief Sculpture Rome Untitled
I chose this panel because of its classical subject and I liked the way the print faded away into the background in some areas, emphasising the aged appearance. The subject matter and colour of the background fabric lent themselves to the use of muted shades of metal threads, except for a few highlighted areas.
Couching, trapunto quilting, beading, chipping, trellis work and surface stitchery.
