* hexagons art installation

Posted on December 13th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Art, Home and Garden.

I can’t believe how good this turned out.  We went from inspiration to installation in just 2 weeks, which is not half bad.


I left the ladder in there for scale.  The hexagons are all cut from fabric and adhered to the wall with a starch solution.  I used a slightly more dilute version of How About Orange‘s recipe.  I know it peels off the wall nicely since we redid one section where the wall texture was rough and not adhering well.  Also, if you try this at home, don’t worry too much about bubbles.  A few of the lighter pieces looked terrible while wet because they had a ton of bubbles, but it all evened out when it dried.

I’d also cut out a bunch of hexagons in some patterned fabrics, but they didn’t end up mixing well.  Any ideas for what to do with a pile of leftover hexagons?


One giant featureless wall down, one to go.

    Love it!! Really done well.
    Love your color combo too.
    Thinking that you could use the extra hexagons for something for the kitchen (the kitchen is nearby the installation, right?)

    Make place mats…wall art and table art. Wonderful installation!
