Heavy-duty cotton, stretched onto timber frame. Backlit to bring out hidden details. This piece is heavy-duty cotton, which I have distressed. I used three techniques on this wall hanging - batik, air brushing and burning. Natural dyes and metallic paint give the piece a very soft, warm look. The hanging is backlit to bring out the underlying details. The overall finish gives a leathery look and feel.

Backed with cotton stretched into a flat gold wooden frame. A mixture of resin, dyes and metallic paint. Here is one of my favourite hangings. The fabric is the famous 70's cloth 'lurex'. It has been distressed. It is a delicate hanging, very soft and subdued colours used. The fabric looks soft but to touch it is very hard. Natural dyes and metallic paints are used to give the look.

Creating lampshades is a passion of mine. They all vary so much, no two will ever be the same. Reds, browns and gold's are my favourites. They are so rich and luscious, enhancing any room. The shades are available in lots of different colour combinations.
