Did you ever get the urge to design an “Art Gown” who could swim the oceans & seas spreading love and peace?
Le Drake Noir, as you speak 8 languages (reading and writing in 4), and are constantly posting pics of or from oceans and seas, This “Art Gown” is for you.
Blue Crushed Velvet yardage
3 white T-shirts, of my design, and 2 boxes of purple dye. I immediately tie-dyed 2 of the t-shirts, thinking of hippies in their tie-dyes and velvet bell-bottoms.
When it comes to “Love &Peace”, the Hippies were full of it.
Blue and purple acrylic paint.
I soaked the lace in watered down acrylic paint.
When it dried it had become plastic-like, and looked like fan seaweed.
I found I could cut around the lace patterns and it didn’t run. What fun!
I also found a bottle of glue, which I used to adhere the cut out seaweed pieces to her.
The thing about mermaids is, if you were under the water and saw one, she might be swimming under you, or over you.
As I don’t have a glass floor, I climbed a ladder.
It looks like she’s swimming up at me.
I usually do a Black & White here, but this “Art Gown” has a lush glamor that precedes the glamor of the 1940’s, so I antiqued it!
Le Drake Noir, I enjoy your blog, and I know you’ll look great in this gown!
