In order to gain some new artistic skills and inspiration, I have just started a stitching and textile art course at my local college. The first class was introducing us to some fibres. Angelina was the most interesting one. It’s a form of polyester. It’s available in lots of colours and is sparkly :). We had to cut up a small amount, put in inside a baking sheet and then iron it. On heating it became a beautiful plastic film which could then be used in lots of artistic ways. I used blue and pink and the pictures below show what I ended up with. I’ve put black card behind it so the colours show up. The colours change depending on the light reflected.
Below is what white angelina looks like prior to melting. (image source and copyright meadowbrookglitter.com).
I think I am going to enjoy this course and will have some interesting creations to share over the next three months 🙂
