Topsell, finished

As you can see, I’ve finished Topsell as a slip (on padded card),  attached the slip to a green background, added some long stitches under his feet as in the original etching and then attached that to a green/gold background. I’ve just finished stitching calico to the back of the green/gold background to hide the lacing. Finished!

I’ll do a post about lacing Topsell onto card separately.

    What a handsome fellow! And I love the few long stitches at his feet. Finishes the composition so nicely.

      Absolutely – I thouht those long stitches were really important in adding to the piece in terms of dimensionality and tying Topsell himself to the green/gold background.
