Work made with ‘Painted Fusible Web’

I taught a class recently and wanted the group to see how the ‘Painted Fusible Web’ could be used in their work so I created samples to give them some ideas, some of which are described below.

This is a simple example where a single piece of painted web was cut with a rotary cutter to create straight edges, the middle section rotated 180 degrees and then ironed onto fabric. I used purple and silver metallic acrylic paint.

You can also play with the orientation to create different looks.

I absolutely love the visual texture and patterns you can create with this technique.  In this example the painted web was torn around the edges and ironed onto a card blank  (A6 size landscape).  More embellishment could be added but I really liked the pattern and decided to leave it as it was.Painted Fusible Web on white card by t r a c y f o x

This is the same idea but using black card instead of white.  I had to think a little more carefully about the colours to use to make sure they could be seen against the dark colour. Lots of gorgeous metallic acrylic paint in this one.Painted Fusible Web on black card by t r a c y f o x

And perhaps my favorite. Again I painted a single piece of fusible web and then ripped it into smaller pieces, spacing them out with increasingly bigger gaps between, ironed onto weight cotton fabric and then created a quilt sandwich.  I then free motion quilted the 3 layers together again increasing the space between the rows of stitching.
