From tea bags to coffee filters? There are no substrate boundaries in my world. We will start out by sculpting steel wire into simple shapes and/or words. Along with other rusty things we will be layering and rusting coffee filters with our own wire sculptures.
After creating our book cover we will use long-stitch to create a bound book for our new rusty art papers. You will have the option of weaving bamboo sticks into the binding as shown in the samples.
