“The Last Supper” by Ugolino di Nerio shows the scene of the Last Supper of Jesus with his apostles, as it is told in the Gospel of John. This painting formed part of the predella, which is the lowermost horizontal part, of a dismembered altarpiece. In this scene, Christ, on the left, informs his disciples that one of them will betray him, a prophecy that was fulfilled by Judas, who is positioned at Christ’s right without a halo. In this painting, we can also see how Ugolino explored how to paint perspective as seen with the ceiling and the table settings. Leonardo da Vinci was born over 100 years after this painting was made in Florence.
The Removal of Wrinkles
The process requires a heat source with a handle.
Also, a flat surface.
And the item from which the wrinkles will be removed. (In my experience, this is most often a man’s garment, one which usually covers the upper body.)
You will remove the wrinkles from one section of the item at a time.
Place the item on the flat surface with the section located optimally.
Be sure to smooth the section with your hands before you apply the heat source.
Gently glide the heat source across the section, guiding the heat source with the handle.
When the section is free of wrinkles, reposition the item
so that the next section is optimally located on the surface.
Repeat the steps of the process: position, smooth, and glide
until the entire item is devoid of wrinkles.
A couple of weeks ago, I received an email:
Hi Andrea,It’s me, Textile Ranger! I am going to be in Phoenix the first part of next week, April 8 and 9, staying by North Mountain State Park. I have stayed there before a few years ago, so you when you wrote about hiking at South Mountain, that registered with me. It may be very far from your part of Phoenix to where I will be, but I just wanted to check with you about possibly meeting for lunch or an art museum visit or something on one of those days. If you can’t make it, that is fine, but I didn’t want to come to Phoenix without mentioning it to you.
