As I mentioned in a previous post, I am contemplating the quilting for two larger beet gelatin print pieces. I was considering doing the stitching with black thread, which would be a departure from the norm, for me. I often work out my questions for larger pieces by making a smaller one. In this case - I have added a border to a single gelatin print of beets.
I really like the delicate details brought out in a gelatin print - I mean, that's the point - right?
So here goes:
I really like the way the black thread emphasizes the beets. I am less enthusiastic about the way the black thread looks on the leaves - as I feared - some of the delicate details are lost. At the same time, the leaf area looks less blurred and mushy. Hmmmmm. Now thinking about the quilting for the border. It must not detract.
All feedback welcome!
