Angelina Fibres


Here are some images I stamped onto Angelina fibres. I kept the iron on too long on the first one - but I quite like it!


This is what the fibres look like; they are loose and individual when you buy them. They cost around £2.00 a pack and come in lots of colours.
You have to experiment with stamps; some don't work quite so well.





Pile some fibres on to a stamp.

Place a piece of baking parchment on top and press with an iron.
Thats about it!
You can of course, just lay fibres in between baking parchment and iron on top.You then get a flat piece of glistening fabric.

I buy fibres from a local art centre, but you can get them from http://www.artvango.co.uk/

A few people have asked about this technique, so I hope I've explained it properly.

Have a lovely weekend!

Thank you for sharing how to achieve this look, you make it sound so easy. Its very effective and could imagine very popular once you get the hang of it. I suppose the secret is to experiment. Thanks again, Jaqi

Hi Linda,

I love your work with the fibres, arn't they ace. I've got some on my show tomorrow, so I've been having a play this week as well. Have you tried the sheets as well? They're nice. I did the stamp technique with them and left the iron on to long (we mustn't be cut out for this ironing malarky!), ended up with holes that looked pretty good!! Happy accidents.

Anyway, lovely to have a peep at your work, great stuff.
