Techniques/Methods

Kona cotton base painted with liquitex gesso, wet washed with Createx iridescent acrylic apple green paint and Golden Fluid Acrylic in cadmium yellow with Liquitex iridescent medium and Delta textile medium added.  Lumiere acrylic was touched over the top of each gesso box using a foam brush.  Kunin felt was melted with a heat gun and painted with Lumiere acrylic.  Threads include Superior Rainbows, Sulky Rayon, Sulky Blendables.  Quilt is finished with a batik fused binding and embellishments of buttons, beads and felt.

Statement

Nuevo Espirals = new spirals in English.  I made the small center pink spiraled piece about 5 years ago and set it aside, it had never been bound, beaded or finished.  I came across it last month and decided to make it "new" by adding it to newly made surface designed fabric from a class I taught in February.
