Hi All,

I have been experimenting with images which are printed onto inkjet and laser
transfer paper and then ironed onto cloth.. The exciting part is that
there's a three-minute window of opportunity in which to stretch and pull
the cloth, distort the image and create three-dimensional forms. As
the transfer material cools, it hardens into the soft shapes.

The fabric I use is very transparent, old drapery and curtain material.
Rummage sales and thrift stores are a great source for this
old-fashioned gauzy curtain fabric. Also, the panels are quite
large and offer a broad "palette." Possibilities abound!
