A reminder... be sure to have adequate ventilation when you heat Tyvek.  It does emit an order and those sensitive might find it tweaks their nose!


Tyvek!  **  Teflon pressing sheet  **  Lumiere paint  **  Heat It Craft Tool  **  Hemostats

Here's the first sample from the video.  Bubbles, bubbles everywhere!


You can see how the application of heat, more at the top and less toward the bottom, affects Tyvek.  If you need a tighter area with smaller bubbles then more heat will give that result.  Use only a small amount to get the look at the bottom of this piece.  You will need to experiment with your iron and see how much heat is enough... and then how much ends up being too much.  Practice, practice, practice!


This is the second piece I demo in the video and the one where I took the convex bubbles, heated them, and forced the rounded part back away from the painted side.  That's what you see on the bottom of this sample.  Of course you can apply heat longer which will cause some disintegration of the Tyvek too if you want.


Lots of heat on the right side of this piece.  Notice smaller bubbles, a strong concentration of gold from the Halo Blue Gold Lumiere, and the disintegration of Tyvek which produces that lacey effect.


This was a piece I played with using Perfect Pearls.  I used plain white Tyvek and spread some of the Perfect Pearls around and made little puddle areas too.  A spritz of water to adhere them to the Tyvek, then it went between the sheets of my Teflon pressing sheet and I heated as in the video.  You can make your own blends of color using paint and either Perfect Pearls or Pearl Ex.  If the mica is a contrasting color from the paint you would see the same type of look as when using the "Halo" versions of Lumiere.  The mica concentrates where the Tyvek really shrinks and since the color is different from the paint you see the two-toned effect.


Here's the leaf shape after heating.  Imagine all of the possibilities??  Cut shapes of all kinds then heat distress for unique little bits of texture and color.  Leaves like this can be sewn on to add veins if you wish, though you'd squish some of the bubbles a bit, which is just another kind of texture.


This is a jester I made years ago.  The rays that surround her head where cut from Tyvek that I painted with Lumiere Sunset Gold.  I also added streaks of Halo Pink Gold in places and you can see them here and there.  Once the paint was dry I cut triangles of differing lengths and thicknesses.  Some were long and skinny while others were shorter and thicker.  Remember that you need to begin with pieces that are about 50% larger than you want the final result to be to allow for the shrinkage that happens during distressing.


This is the piece I distressed in the vide using the Heat It Craft Tool.  That produces a more unpredictable result, but it's still wicked cool!


Same thing here, only this time the Tyvek was painted with silver Lumiere.
