the silk scarf problem

scarftie2

scarftie1

prototype of a root-driftwood-epoxy-resin cast to get large slippery scarves to stay the way I tied them (rather than sliding down my back) silk scarf designed by my friend Ardanoush


driftwood

dragonring2

found some pieces of extremely hard driftwood on the beach some time ago and wanted to see what’s inside when attacked with my mini tools,

dragonring1

dragon ring that could probably be improved on with the next attempt.


flip-up-cycle shades

flip upcycle

my last clip on sunshades broke finally so I ordered new ones, this time wiser to get them with a flip up mechanism. (that’s how the old ones broke, taking them off every time I went indoors). After the receipt of my order (top) some up-cycling was necessary using watercolor paper and japanese origami paper. Method as always as seen in Ross Barberas’ blog and videos.


upcycling in pink

pinkdress1

another installment of combining a simple shirt/dress from L**l with 2 20 year old mini-dresses. The dress was shortened, pockets added (I don’t know how one can have a dress without pockets?) and the belt discarded. Interesting is the material the dress is made of, called Lyocell made of wood-pulp. I might yet print the dress as well but still have to do some testing on scraps, seeing that I have never used it before.

Bought the dress while my water-lilies were in bloom, so maybe was influenced there.


upcycling for summer

dress 20182

last year I bought a linen dress at Li** white and simple, which I decorated using lino print. I never wore the dress because I really don’t like white clothes and the sleeves were not really what I like. So this year I dyed the whole thing emerald green, added pockets, cut off the sleeves, changed the neckline and did some more printing and now I can wear it.

shorts 2018

2 more shorts from Li** and 2 old trousers and 2 very old miniskirts make together 2 pairs of shorts and two skirt-shorts.
