soldered leaves and ironed cellofoil
I will show you a bit more on this technique ina day or so.
I have a growing collection of cellofoil. This is the plasticky foil that comes as candy wrappers, on crisp/chip packets and on rice cakes. I use rice cakes, so these packets yield a large piece of cellofoil, whilst the candy wrappers, although colourful are very small.
I have been thinking of ways to use these in my mixed media, so the other day, I got experimenting.
After I used the nappy liner, I went off on a whole other tangent with the liners, but I'll get to that in another post.
These pieces of cellofoil are certainly going to feature in some of my pieces. It's a great feeling when you have a successful experiment. But all experiments are useful.
