Winner of Giveaway 5 is Carmina
and some Poly-morphing....
I am one of the originators of "And the we set it on fire" blog. Did you see us in this month's Quilting Arts Magazine? Anyway, this month. Nienke Smit, from the Netherlands who I was fortunate enough to meet through my sewsewart blog, was the presenter for the month of October. She was asked to join the "Fire" blog and has been a fabulous addition. In her blog technique, she talked about creating texture on polyester fabrics.
I gave it a try on some polyester organza and the again on some heavy polyester satin to see if the shape change would hold up even on a heavy fabric. I used the same buttons on this piece and thought I'd try sprinkling paint on after it had dried. This is what I got.
The same button tied inside
And here is the satin after drying. The shape held beautifully.
with brown silk paint that ran along the grain of the fabric (rats)
With Halo Green Gold (jacquard) in the shade
and in the sun
and with some Seta-Color dark green.
This technique could be useful in doing a 3-D piece.
