    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...

    I was excited to try painting on Steam a Seam after reading this forum topic. I tried a little sample. I painted the SAS with metallic gold Lumiere paint and sandwiched it between a scrap piece of fabric and tulle (using my teflon pressing sheet of course!). Here's a picture. It turned out really...

    Thank you for the reply- that's where I saw the wall hanging too. I loved it. Thank you for the link, it's exactly what I was looking for.

    The effect I am trying for looks like silk screen on organza. I like the suggestion of misty fuse, I've never tried it. I also like the rust idea. I just bought the SAS on a whim. I think I'll go out and get the Misty fuse. Thanks for the input

    Don't forget, though, that if the Misty Fuse or SAS2 is exposed (as opposed to being between layers of fabric), it will still stick to anything if it is heated. So avoid heating your finished piece or it will fuse to anything it touches.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I get what you mean. Is what you end up with - the backing fabric and the organza fused together with the misty fuse design melted in between? This is close. What I want to get to is the organza alone with the painted SAS2 (or misty fuse) design melted into the organza alone...

    Hi SunniH - While I have not used the SAS2, I have used MistyFuse which does not have the paper backing. I made a 'wadded" ball of MistyFuse and dipped the ball in Lumiere Halo Blue/Gold paint and let it dry flat. Then I fused the layers as follows: Ironing board, parchment, backing fabric,...

  • "Steam a Seam 2 and paintI

    I saw a beautiful vest in my local fabric shop that looked like it was appliqued or painted. I found out that the artist used Steam a Seam 2. As far as I could tell the Steam a Seam was painted, the ironed onto organza. Then the organza was laid over a base fabric, and then the design elements were embellished...
