PVA Tissue Fabric

The first Textile Tuesday and Thursday of May,
we were making PVA Tissue Fabric.
It is a popular method and has been used in Creative Textiles
to make a textured surface.
We used sheeting, muslin and upholstery fabric as a base.
Mix PVA glue, one part glue to two parts water.
Tear the tissue paper into pieces and then
start gluing them onto your base fabric.
Overlap slightly.
When complete add colour,
we used spent procion dyes.
Allow to dry thoroughly and then you can stitch,decorate
and glid.
If you want to cover a book seal with acrylic wax or boot polish.
(Boot polish gives a leather look).
Everyone had so much fun!
