Crochet As Sculpture

Best Blog Tips
Crochet is too versatile to be limited only to the sphere of hats, scarfs, doilies and clothing. It can be a wonderful art medium through which you can make imaginative and beautiful pieces! For example, take this coppery teapot. It is a lovely and unusual decorative item for any kitchen or breakfast nook, and it is a sculpture as well! The beauty and the cheerfulness of copper very few things can equal in kitchen decor. Because it is so versatile and attractive it has been used for centuries in kitchen displays. But very few of us can afford them these days. How about copper lace? Yes! Handcrafted copper lace. Through crochet sculpturing and handpainted crochet, I can make copper lace! Here's one of my latest creations. I called it, "Red Shells." 
Sorry, not available for sale. I am only sharing y art and crafts.

CroMache

Best Blog Tips
                    

As far as I can tell, I am the only artist using this technique, which occurred to me one day.
It is a combination of art and crafts with stunning results. Pretty labor intensive but yielding absolutely gorgeous results
.











This beautiful CroMache bowl is called Graphite Delight. It is 13 inches wide by 6 inches deep. This bowl is a true beauty with its inlay of crocheted, beaded flowers and silvery leaves and the center butterfly. Gossamer-thin silver layers make it sparkle. Photos do not do it justice. Artists and crafters have raved about it online.
I've gotten responses from Europe and Asia with compliments about CroMache, and some other artisans are posting my original YouTube video on video sites online (unfortunately, without asking my permission).

This is just an introduction of my art.

This bowl sells for $60.00 including shipping within the USA. PayPal only. I only ship within the Continental United States, due to the fact that I live in a rural area and my local mail provider is an agent and only carries mail within the USA. I apologise for any inconvenience. If you are interested in purchasing this unique item, please email me to receive the PayPal link by using the form below.

Sorry. This bowl is no longer available. SOLD!

Craftybegonia: The Art of Crafts and the Crafts in Art

Best Blog Tips


There are no set rules in mixed media, that is why it is so great for the creative flow. I love to mix crafts with art and art with crafts. You can too. Do you crochet? You can use some of your crochet motifs as stamps and also as stencils. Look at this experiment I did with a little motif I crocheted.

Crochet Motif For Stencil or Stamp

Materials-

Baby yarn

F crochet hook

Magic ring.

Work 11 dc with a ch 1 in between into magic ring. Fasten off, weave in tails.

Apply watered white glue on one side to make the acrylic yarn less absorbent (I do not use wool.) Let dry.

Repeat the process on the other side. Apply two layers of white Gesso on the top side and let dry. Repeat on the back. You will have a usable stencil or stamp that is all yours.

I used this motif as a stencil to produce this mixed media page for a painty page to be used later for a collage.

Step 1- Gesso page (I actually used a notepad page)

Step 2- Using fluid acrylic paints in shades of purple, pink and peach, create a background (you can use a natural sponge, for example.)

Step 3- Using your little stencil and glittery gel pens, draw the circles.

Step 4- Add other layers as you wish.

Here's where mine went.


Have fun!
