Very simple

A very easy method to imitate snake skin, a mesh bag as a stencil for textile paint, brushed on. At first sight, it is quite convincing. The presence of reptile images makes the eye associate something similar. A closer look reveals the simplicity of making.

This will be a fantastic piece, Eva. I love the snake skin associated with the reptiles.

i like the concept of creating a texture to associate with a concept.

Great idea! I often use mesh bags as an overlay or as an embellishment but I never thought of using it as a stencil.
