Here are the results. I apologize if these posts are getting tiresome...it's just what is going on right now.
All these new tatting threads are totally handpainted. I mix the dyes as I would water paints and then I "go to town" on the thread as if it were a canvas. These theads have complex shading and color variances. I hope you enjoy them.
I love fuchsia flowers. Being an artist, I cannot commit to just one favorite flower but this one is definately in my top 5.
This next tatting thread I am super excited about!!! I was agonizing over if it could be done without ruining a whole bunch of expensive thread. But since the idea sprouted I couldn't get it off my mind so I just had to give it a go.
And finally, I created "TUTTI FRUTTI" which is similar to the "Cirque de Couleur". This batch, being handpainted, is much more colorful and saturated.
