Hi Karen,

I have been wanting to give this a try. The instructions are a bit hard to follow  - I agree. My experiment - SAS comes with two papers sandwiching the fusible. I cut a 4" square of SAS.  I removed the first protective paper exposing the fusible.  Taped it to a plastic bag (fusible side up) and painted it with Lumiere Gold paint. I am letting it dry. (I need to let it dry 24 hours.) My next step will be to use an Applique Pressing Sheet. I will place the sheet on my ironing board, place my painted web on the Applique Sheet painted side up. Then place another Applique Pressing Sheet on top as I don't want any bits of  fusible or paint on my ironing surface or ironing board. Then, if it works I plan to cut out my shapes and fuse (painted side up) to my project using a Applique Pressing Sheet. What I am hoping will happen is the paint will fuse to the webbing and give the look of organza.  I don't know if it is going to work, but giving it a try! Karen, I'd be interested in knowing how your doing with your sample, too!

Hi Karen!

If you go to Marcy Tilton's website she has a downloadable pdf preview of her "On the Surface" CD - on page 7 (of 13) her process of painting on fusible web is discussed a bit more fully. The URL is http://www.marcytilton.com/index.php?cid=129 . I found that this short excerpt from her CD gave me a clearer understanding of which side to use and why. Hope this helps!

I use my left over fabric paint to paint fusible web.  It takes very little paint.  I also will lay fusibles or scrim, or other thin materials underneath my fabric when I paint to soak up the extras.  Lots of fun and economical.  I haven't had much time to use the fusible yet.  Just a little under some thin fabrics to adhere it to a base material.  You can also melt it and the top fabric (if polyester) and get some fun results.  I have a blog with some photos of my photo albums using painted/printed  interfacing that has some places where I have used the fusible underneath.  you can check it out at www.triscartsi.com

That is a fun technique to try.  I painted on HeatnBond Lite and it also turned out great. 

Love you website too, Barbara!
