The other night I painted some tyvek pieces -- today I got my soldering iron out and fooled around melting it, since I don't have a heat gun.
Then I took my iron and put the pieces between two sheets of paper and ran it over the shapes. Closeup of some good texture here:
This one I turned down the iron a little and got a flatter piece.
And here's another colorway that I painted, and lightly ironed the whole piece.
I'm not sure what I'll do with these, I'd really like to see some posts about using the finished products in a project!
