I had some microwave dyed silk charmuse the was boring so I used this technique on it and did the shiny silvery leaves. I used "Wonder Under" painted it with some pearlized Jacquard fabric paint. I found that I needed to peel the web off of the backing and fuse it to the fabric with the unpainted side on the fabric and a sheet of parchment paper over the web. Perfect results! Then I placed the foil on top and ironed again with parchment paper covering the work. After it was done I went further.
I will bring this to class on Wednesday and show you the steps.

Bring your lap top loaded with PhotoShop ELEMENTS. Or plan to download the trial version from Adobe. Have a few photos you want to work with and we will go from there.
We will do some review of past information to bring you up to speed and we will go from there.
I love to teach this class and although I am not a computer geek I can teach you the basics of the techniques we will be using.

It took less than one hour to make. No kidding. I came home and whipped it out in 1 hour using some "Twist and Shout" silk chiffon. That 1 hour included battling the metallic thread in the serger. Love the result.

they look way too bright, jarring, and probably ugly, but take variations of the same colors and they start to look pretty good.
Try it, you'll like it.

I was the only person there and I had a great time taking photos of the beautiful pottery and jewelry.
