Fabric Face Collage #4

Making these fabric face collages is a learning process. I am trying out different techniques with each one. Last night, I sketched Fabric Face Collage #3…Mari Gloria. This is all trial and error for me, and it is a challenging learning process. These are a few of the steps in creating the face.


This time, I hand-stitched the multiple pieces that I had glued to the fabric to make the face. This helped tremendously when it came time to using FMQ. I am still trying to figure out how to improve the eyes and nose.

      1. She sounds like quite a lady and a secret ambition of mine is to play the castanets, I have been fascinated by them since I was small, and they were very exotic in our part of the world at the time (Tennessee, 1960’s).

  1. I just took an excellent portrait class with Lyric Kinard—yesterday, in fact. She teaches nationally, but also has her own online classes at LyricKinard.com. I like your portraits, and I think you would enjoy her class.
