Experiments with Melting and Burning

I've been using a soldering iron and heat gun to cut, fuse and distress synthetic fabrics in these experiments which mainly use acrylic felt and organza.

My textile art group has also been experimenting with glue guns, imprints and foils.

This experimental piece below was made on our art retreat. The ice breaker was to wear a crazy old piece of clothing. We had to cut bits of the clothing off whilst people were still wearing them and the challenge was to make a creative piece from the scraps.
