Lutradur Part 2

I painted some Lutradur using Jacquard paints with Liquitex Iridescent Medium added for some sheen:

And layered the Lutradur with organza, then stitched some leaf shapes using Free Motion stitching:

And cut out using the stencil tool (forgot to mention that you need to use cotton threads for this, because rayon or poly threads will melt!):

Finished leaves ready for my quilt:

Some other ones I made last fall using a dead leaf as my template, and some orange organza on top of  lutradur:

See you tomorrow for my last post of the month!


  1. Your leaves are lovely. Don't limit yourself to cotton thread though, Rayon & Viscose come in fabulous colours and are both made from wood pulp, a naturally-occurring, cellulose-based raw material.

  2. I am a quilter and making these leaves and other shapes will be a great addition!

  3. These are beautiful! I really must look into a stencil cutter... that is a great way to get those angled cuts!

  4. I like that you used actual leaves as your templates. Sometimes I draw them and I'm not always satisfied so I will take a cue from you! Thanks


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