Several Techniques for Hands
Hands rendered in fabric usually look flat and simplistic. But too sculpted hand can look lumpy. In the Couples Ministry banner, above, the fine zigzagged sewing lines reveal the invisible hand of God, sustaining the satin fabric hands of the husband and wife, slighted raised with one layer of fleece under the satin. Both techniques rely on flatness of fabric, as well as well drawn hands, not caricatured hands. It would be interesting to try hands using the fine gold line technique used in the child’s profile, above. In the last two chapters of my book, Splendor In Worship, you’ll find detailed information on Design and Sewing, with lots of photographs of my process.
