Tyvek - first play

My first play with Tyvek not sure what I'll be doing with these pieces yet. I firstly painted the Starburst inkstains on and left to dry. I found with the inkstains that it was better to have the painted side down.

Carrie said...

Karin - they are amazing - did you emboss the stamping, I'm trying to figure out from the pictures if the tyvek melted and just left the stamping. I love them.

Karin said...

Carrie, no I didn't emboss it but I did use a pigment ink pad on the ones that show the gold ink to help with releasing it. I inked up the stamp with gold encore ink and laid the Tyvek on top of that. I pressed my encaustic iron on it for about 4 seconds and very carefully peeled what was left off the stamp.
