I have had a little play here at developing the rust idea further, keeping the fabric quite basic and stretchy to enhance the restrictive look of the metal.
I particularly like where i have used super rusty metal as it has left the plaster vivid orange colours. I think i will play with the patination of the metals further, using different metals to see what colours i can achieve on the plasters surface.
I also really like where the metal residue begins to take on quite a decorative appearance, particularly in the one i have mixed with snake skin texture in stripes, and also the subtlety of the rusted stitch from using steel wire.
This beautifying of the masculine metal element is what i will explore next...
