I was quite taken with the way the Micaceous Iron Oxide paint just sat on the surface of some of these fabrics and decided to see what I could do with them.
The subject matter is irrelevant – I just wanted to use the samples I had made with my practise run on the Thermofax.
This first one is the print I did on the pre-coloured Tyvek paper. I zapped it with the heat gun to within an inch of its life! The outline of the print still sparkles when the light catches it. This piece is probably a bit too solid to integrate it into a larger piece with stitch.On this one a thermofax printed piece of organza has been placed over printed Tyvek paper. It was then freehand machine stitched in a circular motion all the way around the outside of the shape before zapping with a heat gun.I put a close up of this one in to Photo Shop and started playing around with the filters. I could play all day with this – it often gives me other ideas of what to do.I particularly like these two:This is black organza, zapped and then placed over a white background for the photo.The base of this one is the rusty stencil on top of rusted polyester fabric. I transfer painted a sheet of Lutradur using a brown transfer paint, placed it on top of the stencil and zapped with a heat gun.These will go in my techniques library ready to explore again when I find a more suitable subject.

LOVE the Micaceous Iron Oxide & what it does over the top of modeling paste and layered on top of other colors!!

Beautiful samples (as always) :)
