This "Straw Wattle" is "22x"22. This is my largest straw wattle I have made. I painted the edges by blending bright colored watercolor and fluid acrylic. I printed the design on top of the watercolor with the bottom of a spool of thread and outlined the shapes with white ink. I water colored the space between the wattle with bright colors using brush strokes. I outlined the brush strokes with white ink. The white wattle was build up using many layers of BFK Rives paper. I hand tore all of the pieces of the white paper in a variety of sizes. I then started forming the wattle on top of aquarelle arches 300lb. paper and gluing down the torn paper. I accented a few of the torn pieces with a peach colored water color and a ink around those pieces with peach colored ink. After I had the torn paper the thickness I wanted I water colored it a light aqua. I inked around all of the torn paper with black ink. I then added tiny colored dots on top of the wattle. The wattles are exciting to make because I never know what spiral shape I will end up with.
