This piece was likewise one of the Acrylic experiments I've been writing about. First I used linen instead of plain cotton. I LOVE the result.... built in texture and the start and finished surface is really soft... That relaxed surface quality actually prompted the soft tonal painting. I used Acrylics with water as the medium... then did some stamping of grids using paint (both opaque and metallic) applied to rubber grid material used to hold rugs into place. Everything is an art tool! :-) This quilted like a dream... the machine needle slid through the material like butter.
