Amongst my inspirational pictures for aerial views (my theme for Voyage this year) there were several ones featuring glaciers. But how to create this? One of the pounded fabrics I did recently gave me the idea. I used the black fabric with the white paint as a starting point.

To accentuate the white areas of the ice I unrolled and split a cotton ball and placed this in the areas where I wanted it. Covered this with black tulle and stitched through it. The tulle is essential to trap the cotton and black is the one which has very little impact on the colors it covers. This is how it looked when it was finished:

What a wonderful way of expressing what you saw in the glacier, Wil!
