A walk in the park by Lee Brown.This box is constructed from HPV+ (Heavy Pelmet Vilene Plus). This product has heat activated glue on one side that reacts the same as Bondaweb. Lee has used the none glue side to decorate the HPV+ with a soldering iron and procion dyes. Anyone who has been to Barcelona and to Guell Park should recognise the painted scenes.
These samples were created on the ‘Wye Weekend’ run by the ladies of the East Kent Embroiderers Guild. Great fun was had by all.
Having had a good play with various types of colouring media, I have found dyes work best on Vilene Spunbond. Dyes don't add a thick layer of colour as paints do and therefore won't stop the Spunbond being distressed by heat. Procion dye is the quickest and most efficient way to colour Spunbond and retains a matt finish. Normally used to dye natural fabrics it is washable and colourfast. Spunbond isn't washable so Procion powder can be mixed with water and used as an ink. Transfer printing Spunbond with disperse dyes is also very effective.
