Playing with Mistyfuse

In Quilting Arts Magazine Sue Bleiweiss wrote about making unique texture using Mistyfuse. I have never used Mistyfuse but I have read about it in different blogs and also on YouTube and yesterday I made some simple tests.

On a bottom layer I put Mistyfuse and ironed between parchment paper. I wanted to make a shrinkled texture and took a piece of medium weight silk in an ugly color.  I crumpled and steam pressed the silk several times before I fused it to the bottom layer.

Fused to the bottom layer
Then I run basting stiches around the edges and painted the silk. I used Setacolor and let the color dry and re-pressed the silk between each painting.
Painted, pressed and ready to use
I made another test fusing bubbles of synthetic organza to a bottom layer.
