I first did a pencil rubbing of the cone.
I cut out stencils. I wanted to avoid marking the cone. One of the other members is off to a Forum in April and wanted to take the cone as inspiration. I'm more than happy to share.
My first attempt was to use the stencil as a sun print on paper. This wasn't successful, purely because the breeze (that was totally absent during prep time) picked up and blew everything into the shade.
I then used the same stencil on some Eco-Dyed fabric.
Very pleased with the results. I was trying for a 'space theme' but the colours are lending themselves more to a 'sea theme'.
This is the same photo before I played around with the camera settings. If I have time, before the next meeting, this might just fit in perfect with the ' space' idea.
