Lutradur covered Notepad



My first experiment with a material called Lutradur,its the background of this altered beermat notepad,its to add texture onto fabric ,canvas etc.........I,m trying to makeup my mind whether I like it or not.....

I bought an A4 sheet of Lutradur,cut a small piece off,painted it with Luminere paints then used the hotgun to burn holes in it which should give a lacy effect,well that was what I was aiming for lol,whether I succeeded I'm not sure :-]

I then altered a puzzle piece,covered it with Fabric Paper which I had fixed onto felt for padding,then added embellishments,ribbons and beads,after putting it all together with my Bind it All machine.

This is gorgeous Pattie. Don't know why you can't make your mind up!
I've been meaning to have a go with Lutradur too as I know Kim Thittichai (Hot Textiles)and have some somewhere.

Lutradur sounds like a Dr Who monster lol I think it creates a brilliant effect. Beautiful, as ever.

The book is lovely, Pattie. If you want lacy lutradur, you have to water the paint down a bit - good quality paint or paint which has been applied thickly protects the fibres form the heat. Once it starts to go lacy, move the heat gun away quickly or you'll have no lutradur left!
