Inspired by April who does traditional yarn art of the Huichol Indians. I wanted to make a thread applique inspired by her art form. This piece is hand lain silk thread that I collected at the fabric store I use to manage. This was a process I complete 3 times over a 2 week period developing the technique, I developed. From top left to bottom right is the order the frogs were made in. The frog on the bottom right took over 10 hours. Each thread was dipped in a mixture of sulky solvy and water, laid out with tweezers to dry then bonded with bo-nash or misty fuse
