I have been searching online and in libraries for tutorials on making fabric collages. There are quite a few out there for making landscape fabric collages, but I am having difficulty finding any tutorials on creating fabric face collages. I found one that covers cardboard in fabric to make a face collage, but I like the idea of making a quilt block instead of a card stock and multi-media product. Any suggestions of books or tutorials on fabric face collages would be appreciated.
In the meantime, I am sketching faces in an art sketch book, and trying to transfer the concept to fabric. This morning, I visualized and sketched one person. Then, I ended up making a collage of an entirely different person. I am having difficulty making the eyes and noses. I tried highlighting with fabric pencil, but that did not work out too well. Maybe tomorrow, I will try fabric paint.
This is the original sketch of what I was trying to do:
I ended up with an entirely different “person”.
