I used bugle beads and small beads for the eyes on this one by my son. It is of course mr. and mrs pacman in love and the stork deliving a baby pacman :)
Media and method: I gesso black fabric, trace on the design, paint outlines and fill in with acrylic, use quilting thread around some of the edges, and then embellish with black embroidery thread, beads, buttons etc.
And then there is Sarah Lucas using kippers in some of her art, ( I hate to tell you in what way she used them, guess you will have to visit here to find out). Sacrilege.
1st kipper: 'Smoking's bad for you'
2nd kipper: 'It's OK, I've been cured'
