Woof Face 4





Warped up the plexi-loom for the next tapestry, a stylized cave horse.  I'll weave the image vertically.

Off the Loom



Woo-hoo!  Off the loom.  Still have to add the shiny bauble in Ravenpaw's maw.  And deal with the fringe.



Simple fringe technique from Rebecca Mezoff's tapestry site.



Not bad.  It'll get neater with practice.  Still needs shiny bauble.


Ha!  Or maybe this little ladybug button.  ;->

Plexi Loom


Easy to work with.  If the threads get out of line they can be scooted back where they belong.  Cartoon is easy to remove and easy to put back again.  I can check my progress.





Getting there.  8-]



Fiddly bits now.

Half Way There



Coming along nicely.  Some unweaving.


Reworking the beak, body.

Weaving




Don't quite like the wing color.  Needs more lights and black accents.


That's better.  Now on to curling.

Prospective New Subject


Thinking of doing a chimera next:  Ravenpaw.  Shiny Bauble.


Think I'll try weaving this tapestry sideways.

Also using a plexi loom.  I'll afix the cartoon to the back so it can be lifted to show the tapestry from the obverse.


Wrapped the warp on the plexi.  Cartoon behind plexi (removable?).


Picking colors.
