I'm Melting...

This week I'm experimenting with a product that is new to me, but has been in the fibre art world as a medium for a long while. Tyvek is a kind of plastic paper used in house building and it somehow made its way to the art industry... as industrial products often do.

This 4" x 6" piece was heated using an iron and then coloured with pencil crayons after it cooled. I'm going to try many, many more and practise stitching on them and try different kinds of paint on them as well.

Any Tyvek wisdom you would like to impart is more than welcome as a comment!!
