Tulle is a very versatile medium that can be used to add depth and dimension to fabric art. I have used Tulle in different applications in every fabric piece that I have created. It can be used in water, snow, figures or for shading objects. Recently I have developed a technique where minimal fabric color is used in creating a piece. I then incorporate a gradation of several layers of Tulle to bring the image to life. Working with Tulle over the years and trying several different methods, I have developed a system that I find simplifies the process. In this book I will explain the process step by step, giving depth and dimension to simple objects such as a cube and a cylinder. I will then put these objects into application showing how easily they can be transformed into a single building, a cityscape and a lighthouse. You will be shown each application with and without the Tulle. This will allow you to see the benefit of using Tulle to add depth and dimension to your fabric art.
