Marvin Gaye 26 1/2″ x 28″

The image you are looking at is made from cotton fabric! No paint was used even though it looks just like a painting. To begin the process, a photo was scanned into the computer, a pattern was created, batik and hand dyed fabrics were selected and fused onto a lightweight tricot using a mini iron.

The process took about 200 hours due to the larger size and sometimes the pieces are so little (1/4″) it can fit on you fingernail with plenty of room to see your nail! Stand away from computer for full effect. It is protected with acrylic spray and UV applied to prevent fading from sunlight.

The fabric selections seems to be the key in obtaining the painted look, even though I like to think that I have a little talent! Have a photo? Personal commissions welcomed.
