This is the 100gsm - the heavyweight Lutradur. It is a little like pelmet vilene but in Australia - not as expensive. It would be great for boxes and structures and I like the texture and feel much more than Timtex which I don't use.
Because I am working on a theme of Words I have also stamped words all over the surface before I applied the heat gun. I will print on some tomorrow as well. But what I want to do next is to layer it up and stitch on it. Lutradur has many uses. Transfer paints will work very well but I wanted to use Dye-na-flow this round. I sprayed the surfaces with water before I painted so the paints would be thin and move around easily. Because people have been emailing and asking me, I am putting a Lutradur Intro pack together with a set of notes so you can try all three and compare them. Should be ready next week.
Wow - I mentioned Hot Textiles yesterday and I have had to order another round as I have had so many preorders. It is going to be a great book I think for all of we who like to experiment.
We got up early and watched the repeat of the first game of the rugby. France lost to Argentina which was a bit of an upset. We have been shovelling away at the dirt and filling the skip up and getting ready for our exciting evening of rugby. I have prepared Tandoori llamb cutlets as my contribution for the bbq.
Finally many thanks to my Miss Marples and Inspector Pierrots out there who are working on my behalf. I am eternally grateful to you all!
