Of metallic, shiny things…

Written by clfield

I’ve been exploring the use of a variety of materials to create interesting fabrics and textures… this time with a metallic theme… being a little short of cash, I decided to see what I had in the house already that could be utilised.. so I have used the following in my experiments:
Cat food pouches, toothpaste tubes, hair colour tubes, fruit juice cartons, beer cans, coke cans, coffee packaging, crisp packets, kit kat wrappers (the shiny bit), crunchie wrappers and tomato puree tubes … such fun..

Anyway, these I have embroidered, stitched, couched, cut, scrunched etc.. and I’ve started making a corset…
