Fishey Monkey Business

Here is a fish made out of coffee filters.
Penny from Northumberland County
made it. I met Penny last year after I
invited a group of ladies to come to
our guild. She is very creative.
And her dolls and actually all her work
is so amazing. She had me over to her
home with a group of ladies and we
spent the day dying fabric.

In Latest Trends workshop I am working on wax resist. So I
decided to try this with white crayon and acrylic paint. An old kindergarten technique I think. This is a planned drawing for a young artist in CA. She loves monkeys. Remember the game A Barrel of Monkeys. I made this from teenage memory playing this with a child that I babysat. This was very freeing and lots of fun.

Coffee filter, very interesting. Did you draw your monkeys onto fabric or paper? Thanks for sharing this technique.
