Creating Paper fabric


These samples are about creating a fabric from lightweight brown paper and fabric.
I first painted the brown paper with dynaflow dyes and when it was dry I crumpled it up to give it texture.
Next I ironed some bondaweb to a piece of fine cotton .

I placed the crumpled painted paper face down on the ironing
board
and then placed the cotton fabric with the bondaweb side facing
down onto the paper and ironed it.
I then ironed some previously painted bondaweb onto the painted
crumpled paper to get the finished effect.
These are only sample pieces so now I can make a larger peice to make a book cover for my TAST samples.
