I am also incorporating metallic and silk threads to give a shimmer to the image. My art is now framed. My next piece will be covered in art resin with a metallic paint.

Hat ideas for the science march! Share yours in the comments...Here are some fun ideas from the web for hats for the science march. The easiest thing to do is to cover a hat you already have with tin foil and then hot glue some embellishments like obsolete tech stuff or planets. I like the tin foil idea because it reflects the sun and has to do with thought control against aliens. Well, we do have some aliens messing with our minds, so cover them up! 🙂

If you have a special hat you are making, share them in the comments. I've also seen some pretty cool knitted brains out there...

Yesterday we received an email from Lisa of Art Glass Array/The Glass Knot that tugged at our heartstrings:

"I came home from teaching at my studio one evening to the recent issue of Handmade Business in 'my spot' and a note from my seven year-old daughter. It said, 'Hey, it is Lydia. Mom I left you a art magazine on your seat.' As I was reading, I was pleasantly surprised to find my gallery and teaching facility, Art Glass Array mentioned in your 111 Glorious Glass Galleries article. Thanks for the mention! I am celebrating nearly 10 years as a "brick and mortar" and have been subscribing since back in the years of The Crafts Report."

Thank you, Lisa and please say thanks to Lydia for us!

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.
