Intro to Fibers 2011

Fiber, Latex Caulking, Mylar

"Trying To Get Home" was a project done for my first Fibers class at Maryland Institute College of Art.  The idea was that a mermaid was washed up on shore by a storm, and being down-and-out, did what many of the homeless in Baltimore do and started begging for cash.  The tail is made out of lace designs piped with latex caulking over dyed spandex.
