Spunbonded Textile and Stitch : Lutradur, Evolon and Other Distressables Hardback
Lutradur and Evolon belong to a category of manmade fabrics called spunbonded textiles.
They have been available for a few years, but the explosion of their use in the textile world is very recent.
They are spunbound, non-woven polyesters, which are very strong and flexible, but soft to the touch and ideal for textile art.
All the different types of spunbonded textiles are covered including Lutradur, Evolon, heat-distressable tissue and some older textiles in this category, such as Tyvek, nappy (diaper) liner and kunin felt.
The author introduces a range of simple colouring techniques, from painting and printing to dyeing.
The book then guides you through heat-distressing, fusing and soldering techniques for which these spunbonded textiles are perfect.
The other popular technique image transfer is also made simple with these manmade fabrics.
Other techniques explained, step-by-step, include foiling and stamping.
