"Hi, EwaZastanawiałem się, w ogóle: co to są naturalne alternatywy dla substancji chemicznych, które mamy w sklepach? nie dają taką samą intensywność koloru? jak można 'naprawić' je tak, że nie znikną lub zmyć?dzięki! :-)!…"

About me and my connection to fiber art & mixed media
originally a painter in oils and acrylic, for more than 35 years. in the last 5-7 years I fell in love and got hooked on all things textural: collages, assemblages, textile and distorted and manipulated fabrics, rust, handmade paper, steampunk, and all sorts of visual and textural effects and 'tricks'. everything is game now. still not having my own website though.
