Cogs, cogs and more cogs
I am trying to find the correct size of cog, to use as a front and a back, for a book.
The plan is to make a book 3 1/2 inches wide and 6 ft. in length. I am working out sizes to enable it to roll up and have cogs made from cardboard at each end.
The bobbins hanging from the womens` waists immediately said book to me.
Background information about numbers employed etc. from this book. So little written about the women or their stories.
I have finished the white bobbins and measured the placement.
I have over printed the background with green. Some machines were green and I think the piece was a little sombre.
Acrylic wax is drying and I will buff it up tomorrow then stitch down white circles.
Next sizing exercise will be getting the paper dolls the right size. That's next weeks task.
My signature glass jars. These are a little larger. Jute Roving, Finished Jute. I need to source some Whale Oil. Any ideas?
Lot to do, as always know I am going to run out of time.
Plan for next week
1 Concentrate on the book.
2 Decide and make cogs for book.
3 Add information to the book.
4 Work out how it will roll.
I am beginning to panic reading my to do list. Look in next week to see if I achieve any of the above.
