7005: Fiber Arts - Animal Portraits



Animal lovers, let's turn your photo into a work of art! You will learn a unique pattern design technique, combined with mixed media and thread painting to create an eye-catching art quilt! Learn to create animal portraits through realism applique, thread painting techniques and the use of mixed media, i.e., paints, pastels, inks.

Students will learn a unique pattern design technique, combined with mixed media and thread painting to create an eye-catching art quilt. We will be using mixed media to create eyes and blending of fabrics, and finish with thread painting to create the fur. You will need to find a favorite photo of your animal. Make sure it is very clear and sharp with good value ranges. The animal should fill the full frame of the picture. Choose whether you want to whole body of the animal or maybe just the face, like my sample. Eyes are especially important, so make sure you can see them well. Just keep it really simple.
