Here we go – it’s the third mantangle silk painting challenge and I already have the feeling that we’ve been doing this for quite a long time.
So first of all, to answer those of you who are unfamiliar with what this challenge is all about, I’d like to invite you to follow this link where you’ll get all the background information: Inspiration for the Mantangle Silk Painting Challenge.
Each time we have a different theme and for the upcoming two months I decided that we’d do the following. We’re going to create a geometric painting so you’ll need to get your compasses out and ruler out and do some basic geometry.
The title is: Circle, Square and Triangle.
Each of these geometric shapes has to appear once in the mantangle. They can be embedded within each other, placed side by side within the mandala – in fact they can be presented in any combination you choose.
Feel free to use any form of resist you like – clear, metallics, resistad with colours, wax, sugar…whatever takes your fancy. Be creative.
You have to paint your design on silk and embed it in a circle so that it can be recognised as a mandala.
Interested in taking part this time? Well, all you have to do is add your name in the comments box below by September 5th when we will officially be starting the challenge together.
When you have declared you are in, I will add you to our Facebook private workgroup where you can share your process step by step. You’ll then have until October 5th to complete your mantangle.
