A few months ago, someone (sorry I forget who) posted on the Felting and Fiber Studio Forum about adding some textile foil to a piece of felt, this had me fascinated so I rushed out and bought some to play with, these are the results of my initial experiments.
I used a wooden stamp of a zebra for the first one, unfortunately I used PVA glue and when I tried to full the felt some more after the foil had been applied, the glue dissolved and the foiling disappeared so I reapplied it when dry and now it looks a bit fuzzy.
This one was drawn free-hand with textile glue straight from the tube, I think it worked pretty well and looks much more impressive in real life.
I used some real gold leaf before on felt but don’t have any of the foil on hand. Perhaps I need to buy some?? You’re a bad influence 🙂
Gold leaf sound expensive :s! Textile foil should be a much more economical alternative 🙂 I’m sure hubby will understand when you explain the economic benefits of buying some textile foil 🙂
