I'm in the process of sewing and stuffing the textile organs that will go alongside each Disney princess painting, for the Disney Dismembered series. As this is all fairly new to me, I thought it would be useful to document each step of the process in this post.
I either painted the organs with oil paints or drew them in pencil, and once they had dried, photocopied each one and covered the picture with a thick layer of Image Maker (which is very similar to PVA glue). I then stuck each image onto raw, unprimed canvas material, which is what gives each piece the worn and weathered effect, and let them dry overnight. In the morning, I rubbed the paper off each image using a wet sponge, to reveal the stained organ on the material underneath. I then stuffed each piece after sewing on a back with the sewing machine, and embellished each organ with exaggerated stitching and red thread.
Using image maker was actually fairly simple and straight-forward, and I'm really happy with how each piece turned out!
