If you're like me, you prowl home dec catalogs for inspirational designs. And one design that many of us like is Andy Warhol's Sunset. It's often seen as a throw rug like this:

So I painted a bunch of yellow suns the other day, and covered them with a rice paste resist (with varying results as it appears). Then today I painted the rest of the pieces. These I tore into their individual pieces (so I could play a bit) while they cure. After a couple days, I'll heat set it with iron, scrub off the resist and wash the pieces. Then on to the next step, which will be piecing these back together in a different configuration. (looks like I may be repainted some of those suns, too).
