Old Fishing Boat

Width: 36 cm
Height: 46 cm

I was intrigued by the different sculptural qualities of old paint, old wood, rust and moss. The challenge was to recreate them using the techniques of an art quilter. I used Egyptian cotton hand painted with dye, fabric paint, puff paint, fusibles, cotton threads, old rope.  The piece is double batted to give it rigidity.  It has commercial fabric backing. 
Here is a close up of the flaking paint:
