Having just read TRANSPARENCY IN TEXTILES by Karen THORNE which leaves a lot of room for personal experimentation, which i really like in a book, i developed this digital image from scratch, printed it onto acetate, discussed in my own forthcoming book DIGITAL LIGHT; i plan to layer pieces of it with chiffon scarves and stitching to create a small vessel to be placed where it will catch the ambient light. i'm thinking assemblage or a some larger constructions. there are a number of techniques described. this is a wonderful book for the non-project oriented although the project-oriented will like it as well. Definitely on the recommended list if you are at all adventurousx.
