I find this Tulle Couture piece epic. This extraordinary portrait was handmade and not printed. Benjamin Shine was able to create an expressive portrait in this couture piece which proves his expertise in using tulle fabric as the canvas for his sketches.
About the Tulle Couture Piece
The British artist Benjamin Shine uses a piece of tulle not just for making fancy dresses and curtains. He has discovered that tulle is an excellent canvas for making impressive realistic “paintings”. Tulle is a fabric that has transparent qualities which give more texture, depth, gradients and tones to the sketch. Benjamin sculpted the image by pressing and pleating the single piece of tulle. He can make tones and shadows by layering the tulle.
