Lutradur and the New Fibers
Creating Mixed-media Art With Spunbonded MaterialsBook - 2011
Lutradur and the New Fibers is the essential guide for mixed-media and fiber artists who are looking to get started with spunbonded textiles.
Spunbonded textiles are man-made fabrics that are strong and flexible but can also be soft and warm to the touch, making them ideal for textile art. They can be washed, dyed, painted, printed, stitched, burned, fused, foiled, stenciled, and slashed with ease.
Lutradur and the New Fibers explores different types of spunbonded textiles--materials such as Lutradur, Evolon, heat-distressable tissue, Tyvek, and Kuninteir. Features include how to color with painting, printing, and dyeing, plus heating, distressing, fusing, and soldering techniques perfect for these spunbonded textiles. Additional techniques include image transfer, foiling, and stamping.
