Poppy Dust

Talisman: detail

In Morocco poppy dust is used to make "Aker Fassi," which is used to tint the lips- a natural lipstick. I have been using it to tint, dye and paint tissues paper and silk organza. I also draw with poppy seeds to add texture and weight as well as line. I further shape the work by stiffening parts of it, while leaving other sections open and freely moving.
