Firstly, a decision to put this piece through a thiox discharge bath reduced the strength of the colours and made them much more pleasing.
Looking much better! Colour and patterns looking rather like camouflage.
Because of the somewhat foliage-look I decided to add a simple tree shape and a tree house. I now need to give this piece more definition.
And this week our local weekly newspaper included the two photos below. The first is of the Overall Winner in this year's WOW (David Walker, from Alaska). It is called Lady of the Wood. Wonderful! This garment is made from wood, and the hair from wood shavings. And below that is my piece.
