I had a go at making some fabric paper based on Beryl Taylors work that was pointed out by Adrienne who has a swap going on one of the swap groups. I used Tyvek as the base layer. I didn't have any printed tissue paper so I stamped some plain tissue paper for the patterned layer. The recipe is tyvek, watered down PVA all over, small pieces of patterned tissue paper, more glue, a whole sheet of plain tissue paper, more glue then colour. Then I left them on a non stick sheet to dry overnight. These are the results.
This first one is the how not to do it example. I used posh inks straight onto the top glue layer and it was far too dark and it all started to split and fall apart when I tried to dab some colour off. So the moral of the story is to use diluted colours lol.
This one started with a coloured layer because my brush still had ink on from the previous attempt so the glue turned a bluey colour. I finished the colour in top layer with a colour spray.
These are the next days attempts and I used well watered down fluid acrylics for the coloured layer and so the pattern showed through more.
