I bought some lutradur to play with. This is a polyester fiber that is kind of like interfacing but not. It is fibrous like fiberglass looks, but it is pliable and you can do almost anything with it. It takes paint beautifully. you can cut it up, collage on it and sew on it by machine of hand. I am playing with it with the intention of creating an art book, whenever I think the pages are finished.
This page has magazine clippings, cut out lutradur, inkjet print outs and fabric run through a toner printer glued on to it with acrylic gel medium. it has machine stitching and some color added with tsukineko inks.
This is the back side. It has a mexican prayer card and a lotteria image glued onto it. I stiched a laminated virgen of guadelupe to some lutradur and stiched that on as well.
On this page I added some hand stitching and sewed in some window screen. The waves are watercolor pencil.
This is the back side with sharpie marker on the left and seaweed painted with shiva oilsticks. the fish have a little color added with Tsukineko inks.
This page has the addition of some beads glued on the crown and stitched on the squares.
The painted lutradur squares are glued on with gel medium and secured with hand stitching.
This is what I have to deal with today. yuck!
