Rusting Photos

The American Craft Council  offered photographs from their archives to any artist who would submit a proposal and agree to use them in a contemporary art  work.  I thought it sounded intriguing so I asked for photos and sent them my proposal to use them in a fiber piece, aka: art quilt.  I sat and looked at the photos for a long time, photocopied them, cut them apart, arranged and re-arranged them. Nothing was really getting my juices flowing.  Finally I decided I would treat them as a piece of fabric.  Suddenly a vision was in my head. The first step to using what I was given was to rust them. I wasn’t sure how they would turn out but I was pleased. Here is the pile out of the rust pan and dried ready for use. Stay tuned for more on this project.
