having posted my ideas i went away and had more thoughts!
windmill behind linen thread net
i was wondering whether this net was too coarse looking and although i would dye/paint it to be more in keeping i still wanted to investigate a more transparent net. i decided to try machine stitching a grid with clear nylon thread using newspaper as a support which i would then wash out after.
finished net sample
i am really pleased with this but realise it is not hugely original and quite delicate so wonder how it might stand up to a windy beach?
sample details together
is it also too similar a technique to the windmill? Ideas anyone?
