Exhibition at work African sheilds and Bamana shirt


Here is some of my work that I have had hanging for about 9 months now in our common room.
This was some work that I had done for an African exhibition in Belgium.

The shields are made of recycled fabrics , felt hand stitching and the brown round one is supposed to be rhino skin done by using a muslin with saran wrap to make those ridges glue and water to keep it ridged then a few layers of paint and finally a wax as a top coat.

What do you think ?

Hi Sandy! What brilliant work! I would have loved to see it on display. You have been able to make the fabrics look authentic.
