angelina fusible film



I have been playing around a bit with the Angelina fusible film - doesn't scan that well but if you trap metallic flakes between 2 layers and iron them together you get some very interesting results. I have been cutting into the sheets with a soldering iron, heat gunning them and making beads. And cutting into strips and recreating.


At the Quilt Craft and Stitch show in Perth 1-3 August I am running a hands-on workshop - Ratty Tatty Papers where we will play with things like the fusible film and Lutradur and Moonshadow Mists and Walnut Ink and all that stuff. I am working on a new on-line workshop for the new year - must be silly I suppose but it keeps me out of mischief.

And I still haven't tidied up my studio.........

Not being a cricket lover I nearly missed the incident in England where the Kiwis won on death's knoll but the incident has brought back memories of the underarm bowling - the only time that whenever we opened our mouths and spoke, we got an apology!

Dale, I really like how that top cut-up piece turned out...looks almost like an Oriental Peace symbol! Lovely colors!

Wondered what to do with that film.
I have been knitting, nothing seems to be square and I made a great piece not at all like I think you meant with wool wrapped around the needle. what fun!
