My particular favourite was the blue vessel, below. Her inspiration for this piece came from Gaudi 's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and perfectly captured the essence of this fantastical building. The colours were lovely and the subtle sheen from the metal was like butterfly wings.
The next stage was the messy bit - colouring the metal. Silver foil was painted with black acrylic which was then rubbed off leaving a pewter effect. The gold of the tomato puree tubes looked aged by the same treatment and the margarine tops came out amazingly like leather.
Sewing a piece to a background fabric was easy, just pierce the holes and attach it with embroidery thread - blanket stitch worked well.
