HANDMADE FELT, EMBROIDERY, MINECRAFT. 2016

I ENJOY MAKING MY OWN FELT. AFTER CREATING THIS FELT IN RESPONSE TO A SERIES OF LICHEN STUDIES AS PART OF MY INTEREST IN TEXTURES, I EMBROIDERED THEM USING MY MACHINE WITH GRADIENTED THREADS, FORMING GROWTHS ON THE SURFACE TEXTURE. I THEN USED THE HIGH DPI SCANS OF THIS FELT TO CREATE A TEXTURE PACK FOR MINECRAFT, CREATING ANOTHER IMMERSIVE WORLD.
