Ever since super moon arrived awhile ago, I have been thinking about creating a Super Moon Cloth as part of the SunMoonStars Series. But super moon has to be really spectacular, doesn’t it?
I found a background cloth of cotton batiste, which I had shibori-dyed with black walnut exhaust. It’s got those nifty little planets roaming around the universe.
And then I found a scrap of cutch-dyed jersey, which looks like an excellent sun or star. But wait a minute. What is the difference between a “star” and a “sun”? Cornell University states that a star is called a sun “…IF (my caps) it is the center of a planetary system.” That’s in the beginner series for those who are astro-curious. And, of course, it’s much more complicated than that. OK… I will need to be careful what I call my scraps of cloth.
