I started life as a cell (stage 2) ...

Here's the result of some sheer plastic hand-stitched on the work.

Next, a layer of heat-gun treated sheer polyester seems a suitable next layer (horizontal/vertical creases are where it has been folded prior to picture taken !) - inset right is a close-up.

Laying this fabric sheet over the work adds another cellular dimension & alters all the colours.

Starting with some 'punch work' adds another layer of illusion ! albeit in metallic thread (detail at right)
