fusible film and UTEE
We had a shipment of 6 new colours in Fusible Film a couple of weeks back but they have been off at Westcare where the lovely workers cut and package them for us (rather them than me Ian says) so we now have 12 colours . I thought I would have a play with them on UTEE - the UTEE I have used is what was left in my melting pot - I haven't ever emptied it actually - so it is mostly black with metallic flakes which happened to be in the pot and some silver from somewhere. It was the playing I wanted to do so it didn't matter. I poured the UTEE onto baking parchment, lay different colours of fusible film over the top and stamped into it with different stamps - we also have some lovely new texture plates which don't seem to have made the website but one is the one below - and I have let the UTEE overflow and rubbed over that with Treasure Gold. It's hard to show the reflections on a scanner but I think they don't look too bad. Gives you the idea anyway. I shall play with Gossamer Fuse and the fusile film next I think.
