Size: 40cm x 32cm I recently read an article by Sarah Burgess in a magazine which was all about creating embroidery using plaster and glue, so I thought I would try out the technique. And this is the result. I was supposed to use plaster of paris but all I had was grouting plaster and PVC glue, so I used that. I think I used too much plaster or it was too thick to start with as there is no way I could get a needle through this. Will try again with better plaster and less of it. I used 4 plaster to 1 PVC glue. The trees on the left are dessicated tomatoes from the garden and the foreground is lentils. Interestingly some colour appeared from one of the fabrics used but they all appeared white to start with. I also put it on a paint canvas and it may be better on a fabric. I like the dimensions you get with this technique, so will continue to play with it as and when I get the time.

Interesting. Would the tomato bits and the lentils fall off while you stitch? I like the concept of this...looking forward to seeing more!
