Art & Design Level 3 Year 2
My project is based off of my Grandad with an addition of Peter Clarke as inspiration. I had involved Grandad’s interests, where he was from and things about his personality. I used jersey cotton fabric as a base, I used acrylic paint and fabric medium to make my own fabric paint in order to paint the owl, eagle, pier and Smethwick council house. I had also used fabric pens to create the simple designs such as the map and music notes, I used wool to make the tassels to represent his moustache and used Tulle mesh offcuts for the neckline. I did have a few problems along the way which I quickly resolved and ended up loving the final outcome. Making this was a really refreshing journey as it revealed a few things I didn’t know I was capable of doing. Overall, I’m very happy with the project and the way it turned out.
