I'd had an inkling to create a stuffed arm for displaying my cuffs. As a mockup I grabbed a tyvek envelope and traced my arm. Once stitched and stuffed it was quite intriguing, yet it needed color.
The Dye-na-flow fabric paints weren't working on the tyvek - beaded up and ran off. So out came the Golden acrylics. Yellow all over, like rubber gloves, transitioned with reddish shades in layers.
This form fascinated me - (surreal feelings when painting between my own fingers) -size slightly reduced in scale with seam allowance and stuffing.
I traced more arms - kids, neighbors, husband. Again the form enticed me - the variances in line enhanced by the shrinking form stuffed into 3D - smooth fingers of the kids versus the swelling joints of the adults.
I collected more arm tracings at school pickup yesterday. More people I know, my support network.
