Old and New

Here are two Tyvek pieces I used in an altered book and two new pieces I did a few days ago. The black one is hard to see because the black is so deep but that cobalt edge is yummy. The other newer one is on the bottom. I enjoyed making an altered book even though I thought it was the LAST thing I ever wanted to do. It was a bit addicting!


  1. I love the colors you're using for these.

  2. Beth--did you use thickened dyes on these pieces, or did you use paints?

    I painted some tyvek today with setacolor & acrylic paints, it's drying now. After work tomorrow night I'm going to iron the pieces between parchment paper and see how wrinkly it gets.

  3. I used acrylic paints and a heat gun. I think you have a lot more control ironing it and at least the piece remains flatter.

  4. I thought I had more control over the heating with the heat gun, but the piece stays much flatter with the iron and parchment. Of course, maybe I should try turning down the heat on the iron...


We would love to hear from you and even better have some links to your work!
