Sun and moon

I purchased a metal tooling kit from Walnut Hill at the quilt show in Chicago and was looking for a way to try it.

I drew the sun and moon freehand with the tools included in the kit. To color it I used alcohol inks, but when I teach the class, I think I will use colored Sharpies. They are much easier to control. I used white glue to adhere them to the canvas which had been painted with Lumiere pearl blue. I added the text with a white signo pen.

Next time I'll experiment with a different method of adhering the foil to the fabric. For now it is holding, but I'd like more definition on the edges.
