I saw this and I caught my breath. I think a long time ago I saw it while lurking through the hallowed halls of Craftster posts, but I didn't say anything until now.
But it's gorgeous. I would kill to have a dress like that, let alone be able to make a dress like that.
It's amazing, great job.

I LOVE IT! The finished project is beautiful! Even with the finished project my daughter would wear it as a wedding dress! Great job!

Amazing! I sure hope you received an A+ on this project after all the work you put into it. And it turned out beautifully!

Let your passion lead you to take that leap of faith.

I love this work. I've tried working with a print on fabric. It said one was supposed to put the sheet straight into the printer and out would come the print.It came in cotton and silk so it wasn't the same as a transfer. I used the cotton version but I don't think I did it right. I was trying to put a coffee stain onto a print of the death card from a tarot deck. All the colors faded and bled except the black. It may be that I was supposed to set the print with an iron, but I couldn't find much instruction on the specific method I used.

So as an alternative to using turpentine, you could try printing on to these small pieces of fabric. It could give a completely different headache though. You would have to sew many pieces of fabric together and then build the dress out of the sheet you made from that. It would be very patchwork looking.

Glad to read that the you got recognition for the work. I would like to see the whole story about your concept of the lost and found if it isn't too personal. Also, it is good that the teacher did accept the technique as sculptural since it was building a two dimensional object into something three dimensional. If she had had a problem with the technique you could have built a felted dress with an armature, but, ugh! Lol! At least that wasn't a necessity.


P.S. I liked the black trim but you could have used a silver as well, referring back to the silver nitrate that was used in photographs.
