One more post from Denver, although as I write I am in the Seattle airport on the final leg of my journey back home. My Mom, Dad and I shared so many fun times. How grateful I am that we all survived my troublemaker younger years – couldn’t have without their unconditional love.
|acrylic on Tyvek envelop|
Making beads of acrylic-painted Tyvek is a lovely addiction we indulged in one cool, breezy morning. We cut apart Tyvek envelops, painted them with a combination of acrylic paint and Lumiere fabric paints...
...cut the dried paintings into long, narrow strips and then...
... twisted the strips around a bamboo skewer. Some we wrapped with embroidery thread. The twisted strips were then zapped delicately with a heat gun (ventilation, please). Push the melted twist off the skewer and the result is a wonderful bead.
Bet you can't stop with one!
Thanks again to you, Razt and Dad, for all the love in Denver!
