Fire Tree was inspired by wildfires, the colors and intensity of the wildfires are breathtaking and frightening at the same moment. Yes, I was up-close to several wildfires during my years of guiding in Alaska. It is a sight that stays with you.
Fire Tree started with a Hand Marbled Fat Quarter of Fire in Feathers Design. Branches Reversed 12″ x 12″ is the stencil with three paintstik colors, Matte Ivory Black, Chocolate or Asphaltum (I don’t remember which, Dark Brown is the key) and Iridescent Gold. Started by putting down a very light layer of Ivory Black as a primer, followed by a nice opaque layer of Dark Brown and finally a light wash of IR Gold to give depth and sparkle.
One of these days quilting will happen, but currently I am far to busy making more Hand Marbled Fabric for you.
