January 2015 Newsletter


Thank you for all your support over 2014. This past year has been a wonderful year, full of exciting projects. The year came to a wonderful close by fulfilling custom holiday gifts for my client’s friends and families. I have included a couple of projects I completed below along with my monthly textile painting/dyeing technique as well.

 
FAMILY TREE PROJECT.

FamilyTree-closeup

This past year I created a Family Tree using mixed media on a canvas, measuring 30″x40.” 
 
The client wanted to create this family tree to be customizable in order to add additional leaves for new grandchildren. 
 
I created leaf placeholders within each of their children’s branches and affixed an envelope containing blank leaves to be filled in and added at a later date.
 
This project challenged me to think outside the box and create a work of art that honored the husband and wife’s respective family members while celebrating the newest leaf to their family tree, their grandson born on 9/3/14. 

CUSTOM SILK SCARF DESIGN
NancyLuck-35x35scarfI was commissioned to create a custom 35″x35″ silk scarf using a mixture of techniques, such as serti and batik, to create a one-of-a-kind design for a woman’s 70th birthday gift. 

 
The clients provided me with her personality and style. The clients and recipient were very pleased with the final product.
 
CUSTOM ORDER
If you would like to create a custom silk scarf for a family and/or friend, contact me with your information so I may provide you with a quote, click here.

FEATURED TECHNIQUE: BLEACH BATIK TECHNIQUE
This technique is a fun variation of traditional batik dyeing techniques. 

 
Step 1 (Top-Left Image): This bamboo/cotton combination fabric was hand-dyed using procion dyes. It was set with soda ash to dyeset this fabric.
 
Step 2 (Top-Right Image): This fabric was stretched on a frame. I applied hot paraffin wax using a tjanting tool, commonly used in batik.
 
Step 3 (Bottom-Left Image): I applied more hot wax using a standard synthetic brush to fill in the areas inside my design. This will help to maintain the original color before we move on to Step 4.
 
Step 4 (Bottom-Right Image): I took a spray bottle and mixed 1 part water to 3 parts bleach. I sprayed this mixture throughout this fabric. Once the color begins to fade (10min.) I washed the bleach solution off of this fabric. Then we’ll proceed to Step 2 again until the fabric design is complete.
