.....more SoftSpun playtime....

I've been painting....

...lots of pieces of SoftSpun....

...using acrylics and metallics....

...and now have a nice pile of gorgeous coloured bits! :-)

(Hopefully you can see the colours better if you click on the photos)
















Some of these will be stitched...

...and some will be cut and used in a bead tutorial next week.


I've also done a "naked" piece.

If you zap it before painting, it goes all lovely and lacy....





Then you can cut it to whatever shape you need, and paint it.





Hmmmmmmmmmmm.......



.......maybe it's tesserae-time......

Lovely colors and great 'after zapping' textures.

Juicy, juicy, JUICY!!! I adore this effect! Just getting started with all these techniques and it's so thrilling! Lots of new colours and effects to try. Thanks for all your help and encouragement, Chris.
