Decorative details from indian textiles- chapter 6

I used the relief blocks made previously to create decorated papers 6.1 to 6.8 based on Indian enbroidery themes.

These rubbing images above use Markal sticks on black and gold tissue paper and on black crepe paper.  In some I repeated the same image, others used several block rubbings together.

In 6.9 (above left), the paper was pleated then repeat rubbings made before opening out the paper again.  In 6.10 (above right) a strip collage was made using pieces from 6.3 and 6.4.


6.11 and 6.12 and 6.13 have stamped prints in gold acrylic (6.12 pleated before stamping) over the layer of rubbings.

I suspect that smaller areas of these papers will be more interesting for further study later in the module, rather than the whole piece eg as in the section below.
