    This is a completely experimental piece, produced to enter in a show that centered on fiber.

    To a white-washed framed I afixed cheesecloth and painted it with gel medium to strengthen and stiffen it. Then I applied auto mirrors and masked their edges with Japanese rice paper. Then I did a decoupage. Over all, I applied silk organza, which went shapeless when a finishing coat was applied. So I replaced the silk organza with cotton lawn, and shrank it in place, then coated it with finisher (a diluted gel medium).

    I like the result -- a lot. But it's pretty obscure.
