Description: Inspired by the dragons at Chinese New Year festivities in 2012, the Year of the Dragon. Metallic oils on paper. © Su Schaefer 2012

Proofed beautifully on cotton sateen (2nd thumbnail above) and should do well on silk & the polyester substrates. More importantly, it looks great in the 3rd & following thumbnail project pictures which show off people's creativity and craftiness! Thank you to everyone who sends pictures of their creations: see the latest which is a mermaid's outfit made by Tonya in this and another Su_G design. I'm awestruck by Tonya's creativity and imagination: a BIG thank you for letting us share your creative vision!

su_g says: Thanks for your feedback and nice comments Kelly! That 'dragon face' that becomes visible in the FQ view certainly wasn't planned - but once I saw it (fiddling around with repeats) I couldn't go past it... It's one of my best sellers so there seems to be some general appeal too...

rhondad...

rhondadesigns says: These rippling swirls of glorious colour look spectacular on the printed sateen! According to folk lore, looking into the eye of a dragon is a perilous act. Your alluring design is well-named, Su! It is just the kind of material that fabric fanciers are likely to covet for their personal treasure trove!
