I love creating portraits with fabric but I've always been a bit jealous of painters who finish a piece on canvas, put a wire hanger on the back and call it done!
With fiber art there is always a dilemma on how to finish a piece. Frame, no frame, glass, no glass, etc. For over a decade, I stretched each piece, then had it framed with spacers and uv glass. This process was time consuming, expensive, and puts a distance between the work itself and the viewer. I was at an art show and saw resin for the first time. I immediately started to do research. Unfortunately, I could find little to no information on using it with textiles. So, I hope to share as many details as possible here.
