2024 0604 Pop art Portraits with Sherrie Cahill

Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details:
Requirements: Discover the new creative side of YOU! You will learn how to create a pattern of a face from a photo. Use this technique for self-portraits, camera cool selfies of the kids, and even animal faces! Then create your pop art using paint or raw edged applique. You can even combine the techniques and add embellishments! Supplies to create your pattern: Bring a paper printout of a color photo of your subject. Email me at if you want me to check it. - The photo needs to be a close-up view of face or a head and shoulders view, 8.5 x 11 or larger. You can have it enlarged at a print shop if you desire. You must be able to clearly see your features. Parchment paper or clear report cover; Pencil; Sharpie; Light box (optional I will bring mine). Project supplies: You have the option of painting or appliqueing your portrait. Micron black pen .08 or Pitt black pen 1.0 For Appliqued portraits: Fabrics, If you are appliqueing details. Hair, hats, glasses, clothes Fusible (I like Lite Steam A Seam 2) if you are using an applique technique. Fat quarter or larger for background fabric, batting, backing. Optional- Solvy lightweight water-soluble stabilizer for the top (If you are stitching facial features, or glasses etc.) Optional - Pellon sf 101 Shape-flex fusible interfacing for underneath appliqued pieces For painted portraits on fabric: Paint brushes; either freezer paper or a foam poster board to place under your fabric painting project. For Opaque fabric paint - Jacquard Lumiere paint or Jacquard Textile Paints These paints can be used on a printed or colored background because they are opaque and will cover your fabric. With opaque paint, use Fabric - light to medium in value. Hand dyes, small printed low contrast batiks, and other colorful fabric that complement your portraits personality. Your fabric may be part of the face so do not use high contrast or large prints. If you are using Derwent Inktense blocks or Inktense pencils and aloe vera gel. This is a transparent medium like a watercolor. You will want to use a white background because other colors and patterns will show through this medium. You can also use Fabrico Ink Markers for shading and details (Not for larger areas) You will not need your sewing machine in class.
