Today’s Experiment

This is not the best photo in the world, but I just want to document what I’ve done. I printed¬†four of the “Bible cover” images on silk charmeuse. Before I printed them, I edited them by increasing the saturation of color for each image. It was too much for the “Three¬†Mary’s.” They look like they’ve found the fiery furnace instead of the empty tomb.

I traced and cut out a 8,1/2″x11″ piece of Wonder Under that I’m going to fuse to the back of the silk after I remove it’s paper backing. Then I’ll cut the images apart and fuse them to the muslin Bible cover foundations. I’ll have to be careful with my iron, not to burn the silk (though that might enhance the look of the “Three Mary’s!”)
