Friendly Plastic in Mixed Media & Textile Art
This Paisley Design was created using Friendly Plastic
Pellets, Friendly Plastic Strips and Alcohol Inks and then incorporated with a hand quilted piece of fabric in the centre of the paisley and hand stitching.
The large paisley was made with the Friendly Plastic Pellets which were rolled flat and then rubber stamped to create the texture. It was coloured with the Alcohol Inks when it had totally cooled. The brown teardrop pieces are again Friendly Plastic Pellets, and the green ones are Green Print Friendly Plastic. The holes were made whilst the Friendly Plastic was warm with a ball ended embossing tool. This enabled them to be hand sewn to the fabric background.
