Rain Maker

My local fabric art guild does a monthly study on a given topic.  “Sky” was a prompt recently.  Avoiding blue, I chose black polyester organza screen printed with a bit of gray. I cut and applied abstract shapes from hand dyed and painted fabrics for clouds and lightning. Then I was stumped on rain.

I dipped a plastic wall scraper into metallic paint.  Applied repeatedly at an angle, the paint lines quickly created driving rain for my stormy night.

I always set a time limit on the monthly studies.  This boundary can be a catalyst for discovering new uses for tools and materials.  How would you use a scraper?  How would you make rain?
