Claire Ranch Longhorns
Welcome back into the studio! You are welcome to follow along through the creative process in creating this floor cloth.
I usually try not to let artwork spill over from the upstairs studio. This time I had to use the rail above my shower to dry some of the handmade prints of cattle and buffalo.
The cattle have been printed, ironed, medium applied. Then each one was carefully cut. Here I am starting to apply them to the backgrounds I’ve made for them on the rug. The bright colors are paper and tissu paper!
A bit further along. The cow has been applied after more layers of paper were added. Can you see the flower from the flowered napkin? That is one of my favorite parts. French paper napkins, don’t you know. And YOU wondered why I needed to bring an entire container load of stuff across the ocean.
Now the bandanna border has been applied and the medium is still wet! Fresh off the, “Press.”
Ohooo, I’m loving this border. Do you like it?
