Exhibition Piece In Progress

Here's a sneak peek of a piece I'm working on for exhibition next year. The sewing is complete and now for the next stage - melting! I was a little nervous taking the heat gun to this piece as I have spent HOURS stitching it - probably about 20 hours at least! The stitching is in polyester thread because I want to cut through it with the soldering iron later on. Unfortunately polyester will melt if heat gunned long enough! Luckily I managed to keep things under control and just melt away some of the organza without destroying all my hard work. Keep your eyes peeled for the next stage, but you can't see the whole thing until 2019!
