Exploration - Post Office
August 8th, 2017
In this case, I went to the post office in Ballwin, MO. It was very unexciting as post-offices go, with a suburban strip-mall feel to it. However, more exciting was the package I was mailing to a friend.
My entry for a prize basket for an SCA fighting tournament was a note saying I would block print several yards of trim. Hrefna was one of the winners of the prize basket, and given her Viking persona, I decided to make several pieces of painted silk to wear on her Apron Dresses. Since she has recieved the package, here are the 8 pieces I made for her. I ordered silk samples from Silk Baron and painted them with Jacquard fabric paints, using both stencils and wooden blocks. The birds are from a block I carved myself.
So I suppose this was an exploration in two senses of the word - one I explored a new, if mundane, place. Two, I explored painting on silk fabric.
