Just Foiling Around

Are you enchanted by shine and entranced by sparkle? Come learn how to add some glittering wonder to your fabric then try some mystery too. Discover the fun of fusible paint and it’s myriad possibilities.

Students will learn various methods of adding shine to fabric including, foil applied with wonder-under, glue, or bonding powder.  Glitter will be applied with paint, spray and glue. Students will learn how to apply paint to wonder-under and experiment with its uses. This is primarily a “technique” rather than a “project” class. Students are  encouraged to start a notebook of samples so they can refer back to each technique in the future.
